The former definition leads to much greater distinctions between the two groups. The repeat offending rates for drinking and driving suggest that the harsher penalties given to hard-core offenders serve to minimise the rate of repeat offending. There have been marked changes in the age distributions of hard-core and soft-core convicted drinking drivers between 1992/1993 and 1998/1999.
