Drink driving is a serious problem in Australia with a high percentage of all deaths on our roads linked to the behaviour. In response to the problem the laws and penalties have become increasingly severe to try and stop the deaths. As of May 2019 a license can be suspended by police roadside even for first or low range offences. 

First time lower range offences will have a three month suspension and a fine. A second or subsequent offence in five years sees licence disqualification a mandatory imposition of an Interlock device for a minimum of 12 months and up to 48 months. The length of disqualification, time with the Interlock device and the amount of the fine is dependent on the severity of the breach. 

Refusing to undergo Breath Analysis will not allow the police to determine your blood alcohol level and will see you charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI) rather than a Prescribed Concentration of Alcohol (PCA). The penalties for DUI are the same as for High Range PCA.
