Our client lost control of his vehicle and accidentally drove into a shop, writing off his car and another car in the process. He was found to have a Blood Alcohol Concentration of 0.13 and was therefore guilty of drink driving. He was charged with Exceed PCA and Careless Driving.
Bill Doogue represented the client at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court. Our client had a previous drink driving conviction which dates back to the early 1990s.
Our client was a decent man and has a reputation for being exceptionally hardworking. His commendable qualities were highlighted in our submissions to the court including the fact that our client had not been expecting to drink that night. Further, our client completed a Road Trauma Awareness Course following the charges made against him and he even created a program at his workplace that centre on drink driving awareness.
For the drink driving offence, our client received a licence disqualification that was kept to a minimum period by the Magistrate. He received no further penalty for the charge of careless driving.
