Never plead guilty. Talk to someone who understands what you are facing. Impaired driving prosecutions, or DUI’s, are incredibly complicated. Our lawyers have dealt with thousands of cases, and understand that every case is different.
Impaired driving allegations include refusal charges, failing to provide a breath sample, blowing over the legal limit (over .08 or over 80)), and can involve impairment by alcohol or drugs. Even simply being found in a vehicle (having the care or control of a vehicle) while having consumed alcohol can lead to impaired driving charges. The complexity of the law means that consulting with someone who knows what they are doing is important to a successful defence. Identifying the issues and evaluating your case is one of the first steps in deciding whether disputing the charge is in your best interest or not.
