Regional Police to Explain New Drunk Driving Rules

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: Regional police are reviewing a new Alberta law that gets tougher on impaired drivers. The changes passed Tuesday night in the provincial legislature, but won't go into effect until the new year.

One of the new restrictions will see drivers caught with a blood alcohol level between .05 and .08 face a three-day license suspension and three-day vehicle seizure for a first offence, but they won't get a criminal record. They also wouldn't receive fines or demerit points.

For repeat offences of drivers with blood alcohol content between .05 and .08, there would be a 15-day license suspension and a seven-day vehicle seizure, plus a remedial course. A 30-day license suspension and a seven-day vehicle seizure would be in effect for third offence or more, plus a mandatory board hearing and remedial course.

As for how the new rules will be enforced, Lethbridge Regional Police Service is looking over the changes and plans to explain what they'll mean locally at a media event Monday.
