Impaired Driving

Defending Charges of Impaired Driving in Brampton & Orangeville

Throughout Ontario, impaired driving and drunk driving arrests are on the rise. Not only are police more vigilant in arresting those suspected of impaired driving, but the penalties are becoming harsher. Even if you feel your ability to operate a motor vehicle hasn’t diminished, you can still be charged with impaired driving  if your blood alcohol content (BAC) is “over 80”. That is, over 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood.

Why Hire an Impaired Driving Lawyer in Orangeville or Brampton?

It is more important than ever to hire an impaired driving lawyer in Orangeville and the surrounding areas once you have been charged with drunk or impaired driving. Ontario’s penalties have become more severe over the past several years. For first offenders, what once was a slap on the wrist is now a hefty $1,000.00 fine.

Here are just a few reasons why hiring an impaired driving lawyer in Orangeville is a smart idea:

You May Lose Your Licence for a Year 

Try to imagine not being able to drive yourself anywhere for an entire year. It is a possibility if you are convicted of impaired driving.

You May Have to Install an Ignition Interlock Device 

If you are looking to reduce your driving suspension, not only will this intrusive device need to be installed in your vehicle, but you will need to do so at your own expense.

All the Money You’ll Lose 

That $1,000.00 we quoted earlier? That may be just a “drop in the bucket” if you are a repeat offender. After your first offence, the judge can decide the amount your fine should be. Also, if you lose your licence, you will need to take Ontario’s Back on Track program, which is designed to help those earn back their licence. It isn’t cheap; the Back on Track program can cost upwards of $600.00!

No Outside Travel

Were you planning on travelling to the States or outside of Canada? You may be denied entry due to your impaired driving offence.
