Do you know what the drink driving fines are for a DUI offence in Queensland? Drink driving is obviously a serious offence and if you are caught you will be facing a significant drink driving fine as well as a licence suspension. This can have significant consequences for you and your family. Can you afford to pay for the drink driving fine? Can you afford to not be able to drive to work for the period of your suspension? Rarely do people think this through when they make the decision to have one more drink before they hit the road.
