Drug Driving is taken very seriously by the Courts and the penalties and potential ramifications of this offence can potentially devastating, including loss of license, loss of income and possibly jail.
It is an offence to drive a motor vehicle whilst drugs are in your system and Queensland has a strict zero tolerance policy for drug driving. You will be immediately charged if you are driving and if any traces of drugs are found in your saliva at the road-side test.
Driving under the influence of drugs is a slightly different and more serious charge. This is applied when a person’s driving has been seriously affected by the drugs they have consumed. This offence carries heavier penalties including a mandatory minimum 6 month disqualification period.
