DRINK DRIVING LAWYER SYDNEY
Drink Driving is an offence that involves driving with a certain blood alcohol concentration in your body. There are also related offences, such as to be above the prescribed blood alcohol concentration and occupy the seat next to a learner driver who is driving a vehicle. Generally, a fully licensed driver must not have more than 0.05 g/100ML of blood alcohol concentration in their system while they drive. However, this is less for a learner or provisional license holder.
There are 4 levels of drink driving that apply in New South Wales. Special range PCA is a special category with blood alcohol concentration of between 0.02 and 0.049g/ 100mL. PCA refers to the prescribed concentration of alcohol. The next level is known as low PCA and is characterized by a blood alcohol concentration of between 0.05 and 0.079 g/ 100mL. Mid-range PCA includes blood alcohol concentration between 0.08 and 0.149 g/ 100mL. High range PCA applies to drivers with a blood alcohol concentration of over 0.15g/ 100mL.
Consequences of such a charge can include a lengthy loss of license, fines, criminal convictions and even imprisonment, plus a requirement to participate in the mandatory interlock program for vehicles once the license is restored, which can be expensive and embarrassing. However, we have experience in defending these charges, negotiating plea deals and dealing with sentences (including avoiding convictions) for these types of offences.
