Re: Drink driving and caught!

suspense more than 12 months means you will have to retake your license, i think...

There was reports that some pple have gotten jail sentences even for 1st time offenders... so it depends on your luck..

Re: Drink driving and caught!

Under the Road Traffic Act, a person can be convicted of drink driving in two instances.

If the driver is found with more than the legal limit of 35 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millitres of breath, or more than 80 milligrammes of alcohol per 100 millitres of blood, he/she is deemed to have broken the law and it does not matter whether the driver has perfect control of the vehicle, when caught.

Even when the alcohol level is under the legal limit, the driver can still be convicted if it is shown that he/she did not have proper control of the vehicle as a result of alcoholic intoxication.

First Time – Drink driver will be fined between $1000/- and $5000/- or six months imprisonment.
Second Time – Drink driver will be fined between $3000/- and $10,000/- fine and imprisonment for a term of up to one year.
Repeated Time – Drink Driver will face enhanced punishment up to 3 times the penalty, a maximum of $30,000/- fine and three years' imprisonment.

Offenders causing death or serious injuries can also be caned up to 6 strokes.

All those convicted will be disqualified from driving for at least 1 year, even if they have not caused any traffic accidents.

Good luck to you.... and may i say (no offence) that whatever the sentence is, you, and all convicted offenders, deserve it 110%. sorry to be harsh, but it's totally an irresponsible act.

Re: Drink driving and caught!

Think Benedict Goh's case was the test case where a first time offender was give jail time as a warning to potential drink drivers that there will be no leniency... So the possibility of jail time is high, particularly under the current climate of strict actions against drink driving....

Likewise, i think you will just have to accept and face the hands that you will be dealt as a result of your actions, just be glad and no one was hurt as a result of your drink driving

Re: Drink driving and caught!

Let me speak fr my own experience, I kena road block in May 2005. My breath anal result is 52 and legal limit is 35. So kena fine $2.2K and gan-tong 18 mths.

After gan-tong period, went 2 Bt Batok driving school. Passed on my 1st attempt in 28 Apr. (started all my driving requirements - theory, practical and etc in late Nov 2006, immediately after my gan-tong period)

Long wait for test date cos I finished all requirement by mid Jan 2006, waited till Apr 28 for my TP test. Then booked my car and collected in mid May.

Luckily, my car salesman (good friend of mine) managed to get my 50% NCD cos I register my new car fast (dunno what is actual reason for getting back my NCD).

In conclusion, the testers will not penalise u of wanting 2 fail u on the test. U did wrong, u kena punished for the gan-tong, they see no reason to fail u unless u screw-up / kan-cheong or dunno-wat-happened during the test. In fact, I only did the reverse and parallel parking in the circuit and off to the main road. No S-course, crank-couse and slope.

Anyway, kena meant license finish. Therefore, can drink lagi more when u go out next time.
