Drinking and driving is a serious offence that can have devastating consequences for the driver and others on the road. Not only does it put lives at risk, but it can also result in legal and practical consequences that can impact one’s ability to provide for their family. Our law firm understands the severity of these charges and has a team of experienced drink-driving lawyers ready to provide strong representation and expert advice to ensure the best possible outcome.
Repeat offenders can face imprisonment, and even first-time offenders can lose their licences, leading to loss of employment and financial strain. However, there are options available to assist in penalty reduction, such as participating in drink-driving programmes that address behaviour through education and information. Our team can help guide clients through this process to reduce suspension periods and provide the knowledge necessary to prevent future mistakes.
Additionally, some states require an electronic breath testing device to be connected to the ignition of a car, which prevents it from starting if alcohol is detected on the driver’s breath. Violating this requirement can lead to further suspension periods, so it is important to comply with all court orders.
Our law firm takes drink-driving charges seriously and recognizes the personal and emotional impact they can have. It is essential to plan ahead and arrange alternative transportation if alcohol is to be consumed. We are committed to ensuring all mitigating circumstances are presented to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients.
