It is an offence if a person in charge of a motor vehicle on a road or other public place after consuming so much alcohol that the proportion of it in the persons breath, blood or urine exceeds the prescribed limit.
The police have the power to request a specimen for analysis from anyone they suspect of having committed certain road traffic offences.
A person commits an offence if, without reasonable excuse, they fail or refuse to provide a specimen when lawfully required to do so.
