s49(1) Drink driving

Drink driving offences where the reading is over .1 now can attract initial impoundment and then a further application to impound. Second offences can attract forfeiture (section 84T).

If you are facing a charge relating to drink driving and police are trying to forfeit or further impound your vehicle, it might be a case where exceptional hardship applies to a 3rd party or other avenues may need to be explored (section 84Z).

What is important is that you understand your legal position so when you attend court you can be satisfied that you will achieve the absolute best outcome in relation to your case.
