What is Low Range PCA?
Low Range PCA is categorized by the Law as having an alcohol level between 0.05 and 0.79.
Being charged with a Low Range PCA is still regarded as a serious matter, even though it is the lowest range you can be charged with. If you are convicted by the court, there are penalties including losing your licence. There are important factors that influence the magistrate who is sentencing you. One of these is whether you have been convicted for any level of a PCA offence in the previous 5 years.
What can happen to me if I am found Guilty of a Low Range PCA?
There are a number of penalties the Magistrate hearing your matter may impose on you. These include:
§ A fine up to $1,100 for a first offence, or up to $2,200 for a second or subsequent offence.
§ An automatic disqualification of your licence for 6 months which can be reduced by the Magistrate to a period to a minimum of 3 months, if it is a first time offence. For a second or subsequent offence, there is an automatic disqualification of 12 months; however, a Magistrate has the discretion to reduce this period to a minimum of 3 months.
