Impaired and Driving over 80

 It is a Criminal Offence to operate a motor vehicle while your ability to do so is impaired by alcohol or a drug. Over 80 Impaired Lawyer Newmarket

These charges are highly technical and by far the most difficult to defend under the Criminal Code.

"Serious charge"

Being arrested for impaired driving and driving with a blood alcohol level of more than 80 milligrams per 100 millilitres of blood are serious charges with major consequences.  If you are found guilty, you will lose your driver’s license, your auto insurance rates will sky-rocket, and you may be barred from entering the United States because of the resulting Criminal Record.

Impaired driving means your ability to operate a motor vehicle is impaired by alcohol, drugs or a combination of both.

The impairment does not have to be proved by a breath test or blood test; it can be determined by the evidence of civilian eye witnesses as well as police witnesses.

However, driving over 80 is being in control of a motor vehicle when a person’s blood alcohol level exceeds the legal limit of 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood and it must be determined by a blood test or a breath sample.

In both cases evidence must be collected in strict accordance with the law to ensure fairness and transparency in the judicial process.
