Impaired Driving And Highway Traffic Act Offences

Impaired Driving and Traffic Offences Lawyer

For most of us, driving is a vital part of our lives. Anything that interferes with our ability to drive will have far-reaching impacts.

Clients who come to us with driving offences are many and varied. For some, this is a one-time occurrence. Others may be seeing us for a second, third or fourth time. At Bernstein Law Group, our job is to protect them from excessive negative consequences and get them back to driving as soon as possible.

The consequences of a driving-related charge may be more severe than you realize. Our lawyer will ensure that you know the consequences of pleading or fighting your charge, so that you can make informed choices about your defence.

Impaired Driving

There are many kinds of impairment, including alcohol, drugs and prescription medication. How serious your charge is may depend on whether this is your first, second or fifth charge.

We will discuss many aspects of your situation, including:

  • Interlock: For first-time charges, you may be able to get an Interlock device installed in your car and get back to driving much sooner than you think. This may be a priority for clients for whom driving is indispensable, or even part of their job.
  • Your record and other consequences: It may be tempting for you to take the Interlock program, but before you make any decisions, you need to know exactly what it means. There may be long-term consequences to pleading guilty, including a record, the expenses associated with the Interlock program and higher insurance rates. If you have been involved in an accident, you should also know that a guilty plea may affect any lawsuit against you.
  • The circumstances of your arrest: It may be that the actions of the police in stopping you, asking for a breath sample or administering the breath sample could give us grounds to challenge the evidence against you. We may also be able to change your charge from a criminal offence to a Highway Traffic Act offence.

If this is not your first charge, your options may be somewhat more limited, but we can still talk about how to minimize the negative consequences and protect you from excessive penalties such as losing your licence.

Our solutions will fit your individual circumstances and priorities.
