Drink Driving Penalties NSW
There are cases, however, where the disqualification period is not the greatest concern – particularly in New South Wales with cases of high range drink driving. Unlike Queensland, that State has what is called a ‘Guideline Judgment’ in place, stating that imprisonment should not be considered unavailable for even first offences of high range drink driving. So when faced with those types of matters I can rely on my thorough understanding of these cases and their application to demonstrate why prison is not right for my client.
Only a practitioner experienced with New South Wales law would know that they do not have work licences in that State. And, that the only way to retain your driver licence there is to encourage a court to either dismiss the charge or place you on a bond. Once again, the only way such a result can be obtained is to place your matter in the hands of someone who understands those laws and deals with them on a daily basis.
Knowledge and experience are the only tools to use when so much is at stake. If you've been charged with a drink driving offence in the Tweed Heads area, contact McMillan Criminal Law to discuss your options.
