Drink Driving Sentence Significantly Reduced

Table of Contents

Our Senior Solicitor, Nicholas Hardy-Clements, represented a 50-year-old woman at Moss Vale Local Court in relation to the following traffic offence:

Drive with a medium range of prescribed concentration of alcohol (mid-range PCA), pursuant to Section 110(4) of the Road Transport Act 2013.

Our client was driving a motor vehicle on a public road when she was found to have a blood alcohol concentration above 0.08 and less than 0.15. She instructed Mr Hardy-Clements to enter a plea of guilty at the earliest opportunity. Accordingly, Mr Hardy-Clements proceeded to sentence and sought a reduction of the penalty supported by character references, completion of the traffic offender program and medical material.

For the vast majority of mid-range PCA offences, unless a mandatory interlock exemption applies, the offender is subject to the mandatory interlock program for a period of 12 months. The program involves fitting an electronic breath testing device on your car, which prevents the vehicle from starting unless you provide a zero-alcohol breath sample. In this case, the offender was subject to the mandatory interlock program for a period of 12 months.

We congratulate our team and our client on achieving this outcome.

If you have been charged with an alcohol-related driving offence, please do not hesitate to contact our office today.
