NEWS - Canada's Toughest Impaired Driving Penalties

BC FlagBritish Columbia will have Canada's toughest impaired driving penalties when new laws become effective on September 20, 2010. The limits of zero for new drivers, 50 mg% (.05) for a 24 hour suspension and 80 mg% (.08) for criminal impaired driving charge have not changed, rather the penalties for those who disregard them have become much harsher.

One can still have a glass of wine with dinner or a coffee containing a liqueur after it and not run afoul of the limits, but it is wise to leave it at the single drink if you absolutely must drink and drive.
