Drink driving best practice

Driving is not a right, it is a privilege. When you receive your licence, it is on the agreement that you will drive safely, not endanger the lives of others, and drive in accordance with the law.

In best practice countries such as Australia, in Queensland, for example, for a detection between BAC 50-99mg a driver can have their licence disqualified for up to 9 months, receive a fine of $1706, and be imprisoned for 3 months. In Sweden, a country with one of the lowest road death rates in Europe, driving with a BAC level between 20-99mg can result in licence disqualification for 12 months, a fine (proportionate to daily income) and the potential for imprisonment.
