What Happens if You Are Caught Drink Driving?

Drink driving charges can have serious consequences.

Drink driving is a common offence, but it can have serious consequences.

If you are given a breath test and you are over the legal limit, you will be charged. You’ll also have to appear in front of a magistrate. Loss of licence is one consequence of drink driving, but in some cases, you might be faced with jail time.

In Queensland, if you have a reading above .100, you’ll be immediately suspended from driving. If you’re caught driving contrary to a suspension, you will lose your licence for a minimum of two years.

So, penalties for drink driving can be severe. You should contact a lawyer and receive legal assistance before your court date. Your lawyer can provide you with information about your situation, and assist you with the court process.
