New impaired driving regulations updated the Criminal Code as of December 18th. Some of the revisions include; mandatory alcohol screening, no more ‘bolus’ drinking defense and updated penalties.
These stronger laws are quite similar to several other countries around the world, such as Australia, Denmark and Germany.
Kyla Lee, a Vancouver-based criminal lawyer, specializes in impaired driving and DUI cases.
Lee explained that drivers “should be worried” about the new regulations.
