What Is Low Range Drink Driving?
Low range drink driving means when a person operates a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) that falls within the lower range but is still above the legal limit. The legal BAC limit for drivers can vary depending on what kind of licence the driver holds, but generally, a BAC above the legal limit of 0.05% and up to a certain threshold constitutes low range drink driving. It’s important to note that even a small amount of alcohol can result in a BAC above the legal limit, especially for some individuals with lower alcohol tolerance.
Low range drink driving penalties can vary depending on your previous offences and a few other factors. The most common penalties in Queensland include fines, mandatory participation in alcohol education programs, suspension of driving privileges, and potentially community service requirements. If you have a history of drink driving offences, you might face more severe consequences.
What Are The Penalties For Low Range Drink Driving?
Even though low range drink driving is seen as less serious than mid to high range drink driving, the law in Australia still views it as a serious offence, as it can hold risks to yourself and others on the road. A mandatory minimum period of disqualification demonstrates the seriousness with which the Courts regard these offences. Impaired driving, even when it comes to low range drinking, can still lead to accidents, injuries, and fatalities. Law enforcement agencies are vigilant in enforcing laws related to low range drink driving to protect both drivers and the general public.
