An Uber driver has lost his licence and his job after allegedly being caught driving more than five times over the legal alcohol limit, with paying passengers in his car, on Anzac Day.

Police nabbed the ride-share driver at a testing station on Mead St, Birkenhead, about 2.15pm, on April 25.

The 38-year-old Birkenhead man allegedly returned a reading of 0.252.
He was reported for drink driving and instantly lost his licence for 12 months.

His car was also impounded for 28 days.

A spokeswoman for Uber said the ride-share company had sacked the driver following the incident.

“We have a zero-tolerance policy for any alcohol or drugs on the app, which all driver-partners agree to when they sign up,” she said.

“Upon receiving this report we immediately removed the individual’s access to the app.

“Every week tens of thousands of driver partners across Australia help people get home safely and avoid drink driving, which makes this report all the more disappointing.”

Thread title is incorrect.
From what I see the BAC in SA for Taxi is zero and if like NSW then Rideshare is zero as well not .05
He was not 5 times over the limit, he was just stupid.

In NSW it is 0.02 BAC for taxi and rideshare
Whether it’s 0.02 or 0.05 is irrelevant. As a professional driver one must go with the understanding that it’s 0.00. If any clown even has a sip of alcohol, then they should be dealt according to law and barred fro the Uber platform for life. No ifs and buts.

Through the kitchen sink and book at these clowns. They are tarnishing the Uber brand and that’s not acceptable.

0.02 is one small drink. Wouldn't have any effect on a professional like me, but I totally get that even a sip (or a whiff even) would be totally disastrous in your case.
So if you do ever stop being a wannabe and eventually do drive prez you should definitely stay off the sauce. Actually don't even drive on a panadol.
