NEW DRIVING OFFENCE of combined drink and drug driving

Web Administrator - Tuesday, June 29, 2021
A new offence has been introduced which attracts higher penalties for those caught driving with a combination of illegal levels of alcohol and illicit drugs in their system. Research shows that the combined use of illicit drugs and alcohol increases the risk of a fatal crash by 23 times. The offence is designed to deter this high-risk behaviour and send a clear message to drivers that they are putting themselves and others at significant risk when mixing alcohol and drugs and that this behaviour will not be tolerated on NSW roads.

The new offence was announced in November 2020 and takes effect as of Monday 28th June.
