Barossa Weekly Police Report


Police are reminding motorists that being caught drink driving could lead to your driver’s licence being immediately suspended.

An immediate loss of licence applies for certain drink-driving and excessive speeding offences.

The legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) for a fully licensed driver is under 0.05. It is an offence to drive a vehicle if your BAC is 0.05 or over.

Learner drivers, drivers on P Plates or those who drive a taxi, bus or truck must have a BAC of zero.

In addition to having your licence immediately suspended your vehicle can be impounded for 28 days and additional penalties can be applied by the courts.

Police, who can pull a driver or rider over anywhere, anytime, urge motorists to do the right thing to ensure their own safety, along with that of their passengers and other road users.
