Minimum Disqualification For High Range Drink Driving

Type of case:  Traffic LawDrink Driving

The Situation: Our client was charged with high range drink driving, with a reading of 0.194. He was a mature man in his 60s, and was driving home from his local pub when intercepted. Our client was semi-retired, and caring for his wife who had suffering from kidney failure and respiratory illness. They lived in a remote area, and our client was the main driver of the household.

The Result: The court was convinced, after hearing submissions from us that our client’s actions were out of character for him and it was appropriate to impose the mandatory minimum disqualification period of 6 months, despite our client’s very high reading. Our client expressed a great deal of remorse and the loss of his licence would have genuine and far reaching impacts upon his family, particularly his ill wife.
