Government announces new alcohol-impaired driving laws will come into force
Drivers will be subject to mandatory roadside breath tests under new alcohol-impaired driving legislation that kicks in Dec. 18.
Bill C-46 passed in June, and the new rules allow police to demand a roadside breath test from any driver stopped for a traffic violation such as speeding or disobeying a traffic light, or during a RIDE spot check.
The offences focus on the concentration of THC, measured in nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml):
- an offence for low-level THC concentrations of 2 ng/ml to less than 5 ng/ml = $1,000 fine
- an offence for higher-level THC concentrations of 5 ng/ml or more = $1,000 fine to 120 days in jail
- an offence that recognizes the effects of combined marijuana and alcohol consumption; 50 mg of alcohol per 100 ml blood plus 2.5 ng/ml or more of THC = $1,000 fine to 120 days in jail

“I’m a big user of technology myself, but be aware if you’re distracted and driving, you may injure yourself and kill someone else,” said Denis Talbot, a spokesperson for Allstate. “You’re just fiddling around. You’re not watching the road.”
Thanksgiving Safety Blitz
The blitz, dubbed ‘Operation Impact,’ will begin today and run through Thanksgiving Monday.
During the blitz, police say that officers will be on the lookout for aggressive driving, alcohol/drug impaired driving, inattentive driving and lack of seat belt use.
Ontario Provincial Police say that those four factors have been the leading causes in the deaths of 156 people on Ontario roads so far this year.
This new legislation will include fines between $2,000 and $50,000 up to two years of jail time, license suspension of up to five years and 6 demerit points for careless drivers who cause death or serious injuries.
