New pot law and drivers license suspension or revocation

Impaired driving laws will be getting some revisions in Wild Rose Country.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said an Alberta teen who was showing off for his friends is now paying a hefty price. The 17-year-old from Fort McMurray was recently handed down a 30-day driver's license suspension and a $1,000 fine after he was stopped for speeding on a weekend in May. The RCMP said they clocked the youth going 197 km/h in a 100 km/h zone. In similar circumstances, a driver faces a drivers license suspension or revocation.

Have you been accused of DWI in Calgary?

A lot of Calgary residents who are arrested and charged with drunk driving wrongly assume that there is nothing they can do to defend themselves against the allegations. However, motorists accused of driving while intoxicated should remember that they will remain innocent of the charges until they voluntarily plead guilty to the charges or until they are proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in court. In this respect, drivers accused of DWI will have several options: plead guilty, challenge the legality of the arrest or challenge the evidence.

As a matter of fact, there is a program against drunk driving just for new drivers. It is called AZAT for short, meaning "Alberta Zero Alcohol Tolerance."
