Impaired Driving

Recommendations for Random Breath Tests

Article Number: 

Section 8 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms provides that “Everyone has the right to be secure against unreasonable search or seizure.”  Court cases have interpreted this provision as meaning that a police officer can only legally conduct a search or seizure on the basis of reasonable and probable grounds for concluding that a crime has been committed.

Drinking and Driving, Getting Worse?

Article Number: 

Drinking and driving and the closely related topic of youth drinking are news again. On September 1st, under the headline, “Alcohol-related deaths are on the rise this year…” one national newspaper reported on a statement issued the previous day by the Ontario Provincial Police noting increases in fatalities from road collisions—up 5.4%, fatalities in which alcohol was a factor— up 38.5%, and fatalities in which not wearing seat belts was a factor —up 32.7%. 

Party Host to Blame for Guest’s Car Crash?

Article Number: 

The Supreme Court of Canada will soon hear the case of Ontario resident Zoe Childs, 23, who was rendered paraplegic at age 18 by an impaired driver in the early hours of New Year’s Day, 1999. The driver’s degree of impairment when he left a “Bring Your Own Booze” house party at the home of friends is a matter of conflicting evidence – it depends on who you ask. Reportedly, he had two previous impaired driving convictions.

Head-on Collisions, continued

Article Number: 

Last week, The Road Rules’ summarized some of the statistical data on head-on collisions, a relatively rare but often fatal type of accident and provided brief guidelines on how to avoid them. The day after that article was written (Thursday January 20th at 12:30 am) a head-on collision on the Upper Levels highway in North Vancouver took the life of a 23-year-old man returning home.

Head-on Collisions

Article Number: 

On December 21st, two men (a 71-year-old and a 64-year-old) and a 13-year-old girl were killed when the mini-van in which the men were driving westbound reportedly strayed into the eastbound lanes of Highway 1 (about 20 kilometers east of Golden in the Kicking Horse Pass section of the highway) and was “T-boned” by the vehicle in which the 13-year-old girl was a back-seat passenger. The driver and two other passengers in the eastbound car sustained serious injuries.
