WHAT IS IMPAIRED DRIVING?

A person is IMPAIRED after consuming any amount of alcohol, illegal drugs, or medication that causes drowsiness.

When a person is IMPAIRED he/she is in NO condition to drive.

 

IMPAIRED DRIVING can change your life forever:

*It can KILL or INJURE you, someone you love, or another innocent person

*You can receive a CRIMINAL RECORD

*You can be IMPRISONED for up to 14 years

*You can be FINED up to $50,000.00

*You can receive a LIFE-TIME LICENCE SUSPENSION

HOW CAN I ARRIVE HOME SAFELY?

There are numerous options available for you to arrive safely!

*Plan ahead

*Take a taxi

*Ride public transportation

*Call a sober friend or family member to come pick you up

*Use a designated driver

*Stay somewhere safe over night

A DESIGNATED DRIVER is someone who does not drink or get high and can therefore safely drive you home.

Whenever you go to a party where alcohol is served, make sure you have a DESIGNATED DRIVER.

 

CIVIL LIABILITY

When hosting a party at your house, your office, a rented hall, a golf course, or on municipal property such as a park or a community centre, you are responsible for your guest's actions and behavior. In other words, if one of your guest's drives home after drinking and is involved in a accident, whether or not you served him/her the alcohol, you can be sued!
