Impaired Driving Offences

Driving under the influence (DUI), also called impaired driving, encompasses various violations like impaired driving, exceeding the legal alcohol limit (“80 and Over”), and failure to provide a breath sample.


DUI occurs when operating a vehicle while affected by alcohol, drugs, or both. “80 and over” refers to a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) surpassing the legal limit of 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood, or 0.08.


DUI-related accidents causing injury, bodily harm, or death are serious crimes, often resulting in lengthy jail terms, sometimes exceeding 8 years. As a result, laws regarding drinking and driving offences in Hamilton are strict.


Police are authorized to request a breath sample during traffic stops, and refusal may lead to charges. This refusal also applies to breathalyzer tests at police stations. Drivers declining tests requested by police may face fines and DUI charges.


It’s crucial to recognize that a zero-tolerance policy applies to young, novice, and commercial vehicle drivers. Any presence of cannabis or alcohol in their system could lead to severe consequences, including criminal charges if impairment is detected.


Being convicted of drinking and driving entails minimum punishments, even if you never had trouble with the law before. The results can be tough, like losing your driver’s licence for a year or more, having your car seized, getting big fines, having a permanent criminal record, maybe going to jail, and having to pay more for insurance.


Winning DUI cases is hard and needs a lot of know-how. In some situations, it may even be necessary to involve a toxicologist and use the Charter of Rights and Freedoms to keep out evidence. In Hamilton, dealing with these cases well needs a lawyer who knows a lot about the law and can think through all the different ways to defend you.


Success in your DUI case means:


  • Keeping your driver’s licence
  • Staying out of jail
  • Avoiding a criminal record
  • Keeping your auto insurance costs low
  • Avoiding issues at the U.S. border
  • Maintaining your good reputation in the community
