What is impaired driving? What is DUI?
Impaired driving is a criminal offence pursuant to the Criminal Code of Canada. The offence occurs when a driver operates a vehicle while his or her ability to do so is impaired by the use of alcohol or drugs. DUI (or driving under the influence) is simply a colloquial term for the same offence.
A distinct but related offence is “driving over .08”, which occurs when a driver operates a vehicle with a blood-alcohol ratio of over 80 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood. Other related charges include:
- Refusing to provide a breath sample.
- Impaired driving causing death or bodily harm.
- Driving over .08 causing death or bodily harm.
