Ontario to Impose Tougher Laws for Drinking and Driving Today, May 1, 2009

As of today, May 1, 2009, any driver’s caught driving with their blood alcohol between 0.05 to 0.08 (the Criminal Code legal limit is 0.08) will have their licence suspended automatically for three days.

If the same thing happens again, then that suspension will be increased to seven days with reeducation program; a third time means a 30 day suspension, required to take a treatment program, and have to install an interlock ignition program. 

Similar to “speed racing” or “stunt racing” charges (50km over), the there is no right of appeal and the events will be added to driving records.
