Drinking and Driving in Toronto , Ontario
The Province of Ontario regards driving a car to be a privilege. In fact, for most of us, driving is a necessity, essential for our work, families and recreation. If you are arrested for driving under the influence in Ontario, both the courts and the Ministry of Transport may act to take away your driving privilege, without regard to how essential driving is to your life or the life of your family.
You should hire a lawyer as soon as you can to guide and counsel you in both the judicial and administrative proceedings.
Impaired Driving is a crime that can have a devastating impact on people and it may be a good “wake up call” for most people. The police and crown have a lot of resources invested to make arrests and get convictions in this area. Do not let yourself be another statistic. If you are charged with Over 80 or Impaired Driving or one of its related offences, you need an experienced lawyer who will fight for you every step of the way.
A DUI on your record can not only lead to higher auto insurance premiums, but can also jeopardize your general livelihood and employment. DUI penalties rapidly escalate if you have had prior DUI convictions.
The criminal process can have a significant drag on an individual’s freedom, liberty, family, finances and personal life. No charge should be taken lightly. A criminal record could have the effect of preventing entry into foreign ports, and also making it difficult to secure employment. If you or someone you know has been charged with a criminal offence, do not hesitate to contact a criminal lawyer for advice on how to proceed. A good criminal lawyer will sit down with you, and lay out ALL your options including fighting the charge at trial and pleading guilty. Do not let fear drag you into pleading guilty – hiring a well-prepared and experienced lawyer will increase your chances of beating the criminal charges significantly. The Crown Attorney must prove every element of every offence, and in some cases, this is not an easy task. For that reason, in some trials, you may have a better chance at winning than others.
