Drinking and driving is a serious offence and carries a mandatory ban of a minimum period of 12 months. The disqualification period always depends on the level of the alcohol reading providing and evidential readings can be provided by breath, blood or urine.
This is a particularly technical area of law and the procedures at the roadside and Police Station are of particular importance. Failure to comply with the statutory requirements can amount to a defence. A lengthy disqualification would be inevitable unless the case could be successfully defended and depending on whether special reasons apply.
Medical issues often apply in these cases and again could amount to a defence.
Expert advice should be sought both at the Police Station and as soon as possible thereafter and certainly before the first appearance at the Magistrates Court.
The drink driving limit is currently set at 35mg of alcohol per 100mls of breath, 80mg of alcohol per 100mls of blood, or 108mg of alcohol in 100mls of urine.
Maximum: Level 5 fine and/or 6 months custody.
Must endorse and disqualify for at least 12 months.
Must disqualify for at least 2 years if offender has had 2 or more disqualifications for periods of 56 days or more in the preceding 3 years.
Must disqualify for at least 3 years if the offender has been convicted of a relevant offence in preceding 10 years.
