PCA means Prescribed Concentration of Alcohol and PCA charges are a common term if a person
has been caught during a police breath test to have a specific reading of
alcohol concentration in their blood at the time of the breath test.
It should be noted
that the most common PCA related charges include:
Low Range PCA– this
is where someone has a blood alcohol (BAC) concentration of 0.05 to less than
Mid-Range PCA– this
is where someone has a blood alcohol (BAC) concentration of 0.08 to less than
High Range PCA– this is
where someone has a blood alcohol (BAC) concentration of 0.15 OR Higher.
It should be noted
that every PCA offence entails a different penalty, with penalties (depending
on whether it is a first or second offence) including periods of licence
disqualification, the imposition of fines and in serious cases, terms of
imprisonment. It should also be noted that a variety of factors are taken into
consideration by the court in imposing penalties on sentence this includes, the
person s driving history, the person s antecedents, subjective factors, a
person s good character, a persons need for a licence, aggravating features of
the offence, mitigation features of the offence, etc.
