Drink driving charge dismissed

A mid range drink driving charge was dismissed in Penrith Local Court after the client, a 43-year-old man from Penrith, was illegally breath tested on his own property. The man was breath tested in his driveway after stopping his car and exiting his vehicle. This, along with the two hour rule stating that a driver’s breath must be analysed within two hours of them driving, stands as a reminder to police of the importance of following the rules of breath testing.
