Drink Driving Lawyers Sydney Traffic Offences

O’Brien Solicitors are specialist drink driving lawyers and traffic offence lawyers in Sydney, NSW.

Facing drink driving charges is incredibly stressful. A conviction for drink driving can result in:

  • a fine,
  • the disqualification of your licence
  • and possibly a jail sentence for serious offences.

Penalties for drink driving offences will depend on a range of factors

Drink driving laws can be difficult to navigate. Also, the penalties that magistrates impose will depend on a range of factors such as:

  • the concentration of alcohol found in your system
  • and whether it is your first offence.

The range of drink driving offences include:

  • Novice range PCA (Prescribed Content of Alcohol) drink driving;
  • Low range PCA drink driving;
  • Special range PCA drink driving;
  • Mid range PCA drink driving;
  • High range PA drink driving; and
  • Driving under the influence (DUI).

Regardless of the seriousness of your drink driving charge, the court has the ability to dismiss the charges. This may take effect under section 10 of the Crimes (Sentencing Procedure Act) or section 32 of the Mental Health (Forensic Provisions) Act. If police charged you with a drink driving offence and  you intend to plead guilty, speak to us about the prospects of getting a section 10 and we can advise you on your legal options.
