 In response to Courier Mail 24/03/2011 @ page 24 "Drink Drive Crackdown"

"The proposed new drink driving laws which will take effect within months will reduce the requirement for police to provide the most reliable evidence in the taking of breath analysis, is a step in the wrong direction and won't ensure that mistakes won't happen." Pine Rivers Traffic Lawyer Jamie Whitehead stated recently.

Mr Whitehead stated "This process is to ensure that police are not dragged away from their duties. I agree that there are circumstances where the presence of police in the gathering of evidence could be reduced but drink driving is not one of them. These new requirements can only add doubt to the quality assurance process currently in practice." 

The reforms will take effect from mid 2011 and ensure that people caught with a reading over .10 will have their licence suspended until their appearance at court.
