Drive with Illicit Substance in Oral Fluid (Drug Driving) is an increasingly common offence as testing devices have become more sensitive.
More and more people are coming before the courts for this offence despite sometimes having consumed drugs many days earlier. Many people are naïve about the maximum penalty for this offence and consider it to be minor.
The truth is it carries the same maximum penalty as Low Range Prescribed Concentration of Alcohol (Drink Driving). If you want to successfully defend such a matter or achieve a lenient penalty, it is important that you receive professional advice and representation.
