    An offence of drink driving must be committed on either a road or other public place.

    What constitutes a public place is a question of fact and degree. The usual test for Court to consider is the extent to which the place is accessible to ordinary members of the public. A supermarket car park is normally completely accessible to members of the public and will therefore fit the definition.

    For a place to be considered private, there would need to be evidence of access being restricted to a limited class of people.
