Gold Coast Drink Driving Lawyers
Most Queensland motorists understand that if they are caught drinking and driving, they will be disqualified from holding or obtaining a Queensland driver’s licence for a period of time. By and large our job as experienced Gold Coast Drink Driving Lawyers is to minimise the period of disqualification or to secure a restricted work licence or special hardship order.
When people attend upon us for traffic law advice they are often shocked to learn that in prescribed circumstances they must receive a mandatory prison sentence.
The legislation provides that if you are convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol for a third time within a period of five years, then you must receive a penalty of imprisonment as the whole or part of your punishment. A person is deemed to be under the influence of alcohol if they have a blood alcohol concentration that equals or exceeds 0.15%.
