Do I face a prison sentence for a drink driving offence?

If a case is so serious that the Court believes community service is an inadequate punishment, a prison sentence is possible.

This would normally occur for breath readings of 116 and above, blood levels of 265 and above or urine of 355 and above. Prison is also the mandatory penalty for causing death by careless driving when under the influence of alcohol.
