    TAS False Charges of Assault - What to Do?

    Early this year, my partner assaulted me. I disproved his lie that I was drunk by demanding police breath test me (to try to get them to see he was lying, obviously I wouldn't have done this if I wasn't 100% factual). I then had to disprove his statement that I was an overnight guest where, in...

    NT Breath testing at work

    I turned up at work this afternoon and took a breath test, which is compulsory for every staff member st the start of each shift. The first machine I used returned a reading of .066, which I was sure had to be an error because I had no reason to believe that there was any alcohol in my system...

    Do People Have to Answer Police Questions?

    Just a curiosity question. I've often watched the RBT TV show and am surprised at the questions the police ask and the willingness of the people to answer. Questions like, "when was your last drink?" seem reasonable, if a recent drink could affect the test result, but, "How many have you had...

    QLD Does Disqualification of Drivers Licence Apply Interstate?

    I was convicted in absentia for refusing to provide a breath test sample. This was around February of 2016. The judge handed down a 2-year disqualification, or the fitting of an alcohol interlock device for 12 months. I'm moving to Melbourne soon and need to know if that drivers licence...

    VIC Police Required to Give 15 Minutes Before Taking Breath Test?

    Hi everyone, I'm not in trouble with the law, but curious about this. I was under the impression (from shows like RBT) that drinking within the five minutes prior to being breath-tested required the police (if you tell them) to give you a 15-minute grace period before taking a breath test, in...
