The new rules will buckle down on drunk drivers this holiday season
New rules surrounding drunk driving will be implemented this holiday season with the goal of catching all impaired drivers.
A slate of changes specific to alcohol impairment were passed in June as part of Bill C-46 the drug impaired driving bill.
Though the changes came in June, this portion of the legislation comes into effect December 18th just in time for the busiest holiday party season, and when ride programs are in full force across Canada.
The legislation amended Canada's impaired driving laws to allow police officers to conduct mandatory roadside alcohol breath tests on drivers they pull over, without requiring a suspicion that the person had been drinking.
Right now in Canada, 4 die every day by drunk drivers as well as numerous injuries.
