An important aspect of drink driving laws QLD, is the alcohol limits levels that apply. Its important that you understand these and also a guide to the amount to the amount of alcohol you can drink before you are considered over the limit and in breach of drink driving laws QLD.

There are 4 alcohol limits in Queensland. These limits are used to apply penalties if you’re caught driving with a blood or breath alcohol concentration (BAC) that is illegal for the licence you have.

The limits are as follows:

  1. ‘no alcohol’ limit –  if the concentration of alcohol in your blood or breath is more than zero you will be above this limit
  2. general alcohol limit – if the concentration of alcohol in your blood or breath is equal to or more than 0.05, you will be over this limit
  3. middle alcohol limit – if the concentration of alcohol in your blood or breath is equal to or more than 0.10, you will exceed this limit
  4. high alcohol limit – if the concentration of alcohol in your blood or breath is equal to or more than 0.15, you will be over this limit

There are many factors which impact your Blood or breath alcohol concentration (BAC) level. The amount you drink is only one factor, it also depends on how long you’ve been drinking for, your weight, your gender, whether you’ve eaten, even the types of drink you consume. So the best approach is if you are going to drive, just don’t drink at all, its just not worth the risk. Not only can it put yours and other peoples lives in danger, you run the risk of being caught drink driving.
