Drug Driving Offences
In recent times, the Courts have seen a growing number of matters in which people are being caught driving with drugs in their system. This is in part due to a concerted effort by the New South Wales Police Force to target drug drivers. Most people are ignorant of how these matters are targeted, and how serious the penalties associated with it can be. This will provide you with a brief introduction.
Different drugs effect people differently, and as such, show up on tests differently. Counter intuitively, often less “serious” drugs tend to stay in your system longer than those which we generally consider to be more “serious”. People are generally tested by Police by way of a Saliva test. In the test, the Police officer will ask you to drag an instrument across your tongue. Drugs will usually last longer in your blood and urine, than your Saliva. As such, if Police believe that you have drugs in your system, they will take you to a local hospital where you will be subjected to a blood and urine test.
The seriousness of the charge is not distinguished based on the type of drug, but rather, whether the person was “under the influence” at the time of driving. Depending on the way you act, the amount of drug located in your system, and other evidence before the Police, you may be charged with being under the influence. If a person who has drugs in their system is not “under the influence”, they face a licence disqualification of between 3 months (minimum) to 6 months, and up to a $2,200 fine. If a person has drugs in their system and is “under the influence”, they face a licence disqualification of between 12 months (minimum) to 3 years. They can also face up to 18 months imprisonment or $3,300 fine. Drug driving charges are serious as they carry with them the implication of a drug conviction but also restrict a person’s ability to drive. There are a number of strategies that can be employed to get you the best result, including avoiding a conviction and a disqualification period.
