We have several laws currently in place for drink driving offences. The penalties vary from fines to imprisonment depending on the severity of the offence. Still, drink driving remains to be the leading cause of road trauma and death in Australia. This just reiterates what studies reveal that tougher criminal punishments do not really translate to a reduction of crime offences. Much is needed to improve the current situation of drink driving in Australia.
