Impaired Driving related charges can have severe consequences. Automatic loss of licence often leads to loss of employment. As well, jail terms, high fines, probation and increased car insurance premiums can flow from an impaired driving conviction. Driving under the influence of Marijuana and/or other drugs can also result in an impaired driving charge. With Canada’s new laws coming into place in 2017 many individuals will need to understand the laws regarding driving impaired under the influence of cannabis or any cannabis related products.
The Criminal Code provides for a graduated minimum penalty scheme depending on the criminal record for similar charges:
What are the DUI Penalties?
- 1st Offence : $1,000 fine, 1 – 3 year driving prohibition.
- 2nd Offence : 30 days jail, 2 – 5 year driving prohibition.
- 3rd Offence : 120 days jail, 3 year driving prohibition Minimum with no Maximum.
The provincial suspension runs concurrent (at the same time) as the court imposed suspension noted above.
Minimum DUI Suspensions
- 1st offence – 1 year suspension
- 2nd offence – 3 years if prior occurred within past 10 years
- 3rd or more offence – 5 years
