Greater Toronto DUI Offence Laws - Points To Consider When Challenging a DUI Conviction

There are many aspects of a DUI criminal offence that we need to consider. Section 253 (1) states that every one commits an offence who operates a motor vehicle or vessel or assists in the operation of an aircraft or of railway equipment or has the care or control of a motor vehicle, vessel, aircraft or railway equipment, whether it is in motion or not.

A police officer can charge you when she/he has reasonable grounds to believe that drugs or alcohol impaired your operating ability and that you are beyond the limits of sobriety. You can be put through physical coordination tests, and if you are found to be impaired, then blood and urine samples and breathalyzer tests will be taken to substantiate the DUI offence further.

Extreme Drinking and Driving Offences in Greater Toronto, Ontario

This is the over 80 offence. An accused is charged with this offence when the Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) in the body exceeds 80mg for a 100 ml blood sample. However, for a DUI conviction, there are some procedures that need to be thoroughly followed by the authorities.

Each sample has to be taken as soon as possible after the incident with the first sample being taken not later than two hours. Thereafter, subsequent samples should be taken at 15 minutes intervals. The sample has to be directly taken in an approved instrument operated by a certified technician. The reports of the analysis made by the technician are admissible during trial. Our Greater Toronto DUI Lawyer goes through all these procedures and will ensure that none are overlooked.
