Random Breath tests

It's about time Canada. Fully support MADD in their initiatives.
RCMP need the tools and Government needs to tighten loop holes in the law! It's been done in Sweden and Australia to name a few. Get with it. Driving under the influence is a crime and should be legislated as such....

While travelling in Finland in 2002 it was done this way, we were stopped at 10am and a breath test requested. Also zero alcohol for the driver, yet all the passengers could be openly drinking.

I have no concerns if passengers ate allowed to drink. I see no reason it should be illegal.
But I'm a strong advocate for zero bac in the driver.

impo every province & territory should be zero bac tolerance for drivers, no ifs... buts or maybes about it. Same zero tolerance for pot smoking for drivers.

it is a violation of our charter rights under section 8. if there is no suspicion then it is an unlawful search. im all for getting drunks off the road but not at the cost of eroding our rights.this is a slippery slope

Here are some signs to look for drinking driver:

1) Swerving or slowing
2) Erratic braking and acceleration
3) Sudden, abrupt turns
4) Driving down the center of a road or straddling two lanes
5) Driving on the wrong side of the road
6) Stopping inappropriately in traffic
7) Failure to respond appropriately to traffic signals

Many of the above signs can be seen daily on Harvey, so should the police be pulling them over.

Same can be said of drunk killing innocent victims, there right to life has been extremely violated (voice of reason).
Courts gives that killer essentially not much more the slap on the wrist, meanwhile victims will never return. impo they lost their rights the moment they decided to drive after drinking.
Plan ahead & stick to that plan... be it a Cab, DD, or call a friend.

Just about everybody in the valley must be constantly driving drunk! I see people doing this ALL the time. Some of them in cop cars!

Going to flat out disagree. The last thing we need is more liberties for the RCMP to be judge, jury and executioner for any reason. If you do not think this will open it up for abuse of power and profiling by RCMP, think again. The issue is “impairment”. Are you saying that an 80 something driver with reflexes slower than molasses is safer than the average drinker with a .05 or even .08 BAC … I don’t. I support MADD and I have lost a best friend to a DUI incident, so I have felt the pain. However we have many more and far worse drivers and dangerous drivers on the road than just those who have a small amount of alcohol in their system. It should be about your ability to drive and not what is in your system. Like pills or other over the counter meds. Witch hunt is smells like.

Charged with refusal.
Probably a good chunk of legal fees, and charges will stand.

How do you know charges will stand? I'm anxiously waiting to see how the first charge holds up in court against our charter.
