Drive with prescribed content of drug and alcohol, this is a relatively new area of the law that provides extra punishment to drivers that have both, drugs and alcohol in their system whilst behind the wheel.
An offence against s 49(1)(bc) is a “relevant offence” as per s 84C regarding hoon driving.
For the exact mechanisms that determine whether you face an impoundment or forfeiture application see the hoon offences page.
An offender who has committed any ‘relevant’ impoundment offence in the previous six years could also have their vehicle immediately impounded by police for the following offences:
- drink-driving with a BAC of 0.05 to 0.099
- drug-driving (failing a roadside drug test)
- combined drink and drug-driving with a BAC of less than 0.10
