What Is High Range Drink Driving?
So, what does high range drink driving mean? In Queensland, high range drink driving simply means operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of over 0.15%. The specific BAC threshold for high range offences can vary by jurisdiction, so if the driver is in a different state when tested, different rules and subsequent penalties may apply.
What Is The Penalty For High Range Drink Driving?
In any state in Australia, a high range drink driving offense is treated with the utmost seriousness, as it poses considerable risks to road safety. Driving with such a high level of impairment can lead to severe accidents, endangering not only the driver but also passengers, other drivers, and pedestrians on the road.
Therefore, the penalties for high range drink driving offences are substantial. In most cases, they are also influenced by factors such as any previous offences and the circumstances around the incident. The consequences of a high range drink driving conviction can include substantial fines, lengthy periods of license suspension, mandatory participation in alcohol education programs, potential probation, and even imprisonment, especially for repeat offenders or cases involving severe impairment.
