Man Charged for Drink Driving Twice Within Three Hours in NSW

 

It is reported that a Man whose driver licence expired over two decades ago has allegedly driven his motor vehicle whilst intoxicated on two occasions within a three hour period at different locations within NSW.

The man was arrested by police last Thursday at about midday when police attended the scene of a car crash at Harden on Burley Griffin Way. Upon attendance, police found the driver of a Nissan Navara crashed into a drain.

The driver was not injured, but allegedly gave a BAC reading of 0.129 with an expired licence since December 1998. He was released from police custody.

Following multiple complaints of a person driving a vehicle on the Olympic Hwy, north of Cootamundra, police discovered the same man inside his vehicle in a driveway over a couple of hours after his initial police interaction.

The same man then provided a second BAC reading of 0.211. He was charged with high range PCA and granted bail.

The man was issues with a court attendance notice, required to appear in March at the Cootamundra Local Court.

High range PCA is another phrase used for ‘high range drink driving’. Anyone guilty of drink driving with a BAC reading of at least 0.15g in NSW can face up to 18-months imprisonment or $3,300 fine, or both in addition to a criminal record.

If after pleading guilty to drink driving, the court is convinced to impose a section 10 non-conviction sentence, this means that none of the above penalties apply.
