Exceed PCA, Dangerous Driving, and Other Traffic Charges – Adjourned Undertaking

Our client was charged with drink driving and other traffic offences and had a blood alcohol concentration of just under 0.1%. He had no prior court history.

Overall, the charges he faced were:

  • Exceed PCA 49(1)(b)
  • Exceed PCA 49(1)(f)
  • Dangerous driving
  • Fail to stop when Police signal
  • Fail to keep left of the dividing lane

Shaun Pascoe represented our client at the Heidelberg Magistrates’ Court.

The Prosecution summary was amended which had contained some aggravating facts disputed by our client. Submissions were made in mitigation as to our client’s willingness to accept responsibility for his actions, and that during the period of the suspension he had not reoffended.

Our client received a good behaviour bond.
