FIGHT AN IMPAIRED DRIVING OFFENCE
DON'T JUST PAY YOUR TICKET! CALL X-COPPER NOW!
All it takes is one impaired driving charge to forever change your life. Having one too many alcoholic drinks in your system, and then getting behind the wheel of a vehicle can have devastating consequences on you: you could lose your job, be denied entry into certain countries, become labeled a "high risk driver" which increases your premiums sky high assuming they do not cancel your policy. If you hit someone while under the influence, you are open to many, more serious charges and could be responsible for the loss of another person's life. The worst part of this is the knowledge that you now have a permanent criminal record.The minimum penalty in Ontario for a first offence is:
- Suspension of your driving privileges for one year
- A fine of no less than $1000
- Participation in the "Back on Track Course"
- Installation, at your cost, of an Ignition Interlock system (an alcohol screening device) in your vehicle for one year
The minimum penalty in Ontario for a second offence is:
- Driver's licence Suspension for three years
- Mandatory jail term of 30 days
- Participation in the "Back on Track Course" for 11 months
- Installation, at your cost, of an Ignition Interlock system (an alcohol screening device) in your car for three years
In addition, the Ministry of Transportation's "Back on Track" counseling program will cost you $578. You will be required to attend classes and undergo medical and psychological assessments throughout the program.
