DRIV­ING WHILE AF­FECTED BY DRUGS OR ALCOHOL

Super Camping - - TRAVEL TIPS -

It is a crim­i­nal of­fence to op­er­ate, or be in the care or con­trol of a ve­hi­cle, whether in mo­tion or not, with a blood alcohol con­tent of more than

.08 per­cent. Po­lice in B.C. can is­sue an im­me­di­ate road­side pro­hi­bi­tion to an im­paired driver with a blood-alcohol con­tent of .05 or higher. Driv­ers with blood alcohol con­tent be­tween .05 and .08 may also face fines and li­cense sus­pen­sions, and have their ve­hi­cles im­pounded. Breath sam­ples may be re­quested by a peace of­fi­cer and re­fus­ing a breath­a­lyzer test could also re­sult in crim­i­nal charges.
