On 11 August I was pulled over by police. I had a jug and a glass of beer and blew 562 micrograms of alcohol per litre of breath. I appeared in court on 20 August and my case was postponed till 3 September for me to be able to seek legal assistance. The duty lawyer informed me that I will most probably get a fine for the amount of the breath test and I will be disqualified from driving for 6 months. As I am staying in a rural area and my work place is about 20km from my house, the suspension of my license will cause a really big problem to get to work and back. This is my first offense. Is there anything that can be done to not have my license suspended? … read more
