In Australia, drink driving is viewed as a serious offence. Depending on various factors, the penalties for driving while intoxicated vary, from a fine and mandatory disqualification of your driver’s licence, to imprisonment. The first step towards a drink driving charge is usually a preliminary breath test, conducted at the side of the road, as part of a random check or following an accident. The police will test whether there is any alcohol in the driver’s breath. If the driver fails the preliminary breath test he or she will be arrested and made to undertake a breath analysis test. If the reading is confirmed, consequences including instant disqualification of the drivers licence., impounding of the vehicle, and commencement of Court proceedings may follow.
For any person facing a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol, or any other traffic offence, the outcome may be life changing, especially where the person requires a driver’s licence for work.
