Drink Driving

You’ve Been Arrested for Drink Driving—Now What?

No matter what you think your chances are at trial on charges of drink driving, you may have a proper defence.  Consult experienced Drink Driving Lawyers in Sydney to protect the rights of yourself and others.

You should never drink and drive.  But if you are charged with such a crime, there is important information to know.

NSW has three blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limits:  zero, under 0.02 and under 0.05. The limit that applies to you depends on the category of your licence and the type of vehicle you are driving.  Being charged—and ultimately convicted—of a drink driving offence can lead to severe consequences including (i) demerit points, (ii) suspension or cancellation of your licence, (iii) fines and penalties and, of course, (iv) prison.

The most common defences to drink driving charges include: (i) the police cannot prove who the driver was, (ii) the vehicle was not being driven or being put into motion, (iii) the breath analysis was not taken within the two (2) hour time limit required by law, (iv) the breath test was not properly administered and (v) the blood alcohol concentration of the driver was not the same when the test was carried out from when the person was driving.

Experienced Drink Driving Lawyers in Sydney will know how to best protect you.

In addition to the above, in any criminal charge, make sure the police “statement of facts” is accurate.  If not, an application to the magistrate may lead to dismissal of any charges.  Also, if you can show a legitimate reason for your actions, and that without that reason you would not have committed the act, this may serve as a proper defence.

Indeed, in any criminal charge, you should consult experienced Drink Driving Lawyers in Sydney to assist you and to protect the rights of yourself and others.
