Charged with an Over 80 Impaired Driving? Call a Lawyer in Brampton for Representation

Impaired driving lawyer Brampton
If you have been charged with impaired driving, you may feel ashamed, overwhelmed, or anxious. A conviction can have serious, lasting consequences in cases involving impaired driving. You need a lawyer to represent you and help you maintain your freedom.

How an Impaired Driving Charge Can Affect You
A single mistake can affect your life for years, or even permanently. Drunk driving, no matter how low your blood alcohol content (BAC) is, can result in licence suspension. If a roadside breathalyzer test measures your BAC between 0.05 and 0.08, you may be subject to the following consequences:

  • Roadside suspension of 3 to 30 days
  • Fine of $150
  • Required alcohol education or treatment program
  • Installation of an ignition interlock system on your vehicle

A conviction of driving with a BAC higher than 0.08 may result in any of the above consequences, as well as:

  • Roadside suspension of at least one year
  • Jail sentence of 30 to 120 days
  • Fine of $1,000 or more, as determined by a judge

If you hold a licence in the United States, that licence may also be revoked as a result of the conviction. The only way to avoid suspension and other consequences is to dispute the charge, which is why you need the help of a lawyer.
