Can anyone shed some light as to how I should now proceed? Do I still have to wait for the 7 day suspension on my car? Now, since I was vindicated on the previous charge, do I have to now fight this additional ticket? I am at a loss on what to do. Can anyone shed some light?
Under the Road Safety Act, 2009, three new seven-day vehicle impoundments are effective December 1, 2010. These are in addition to the 7-day impoundment for drivers engaged in a race, stunt or contest on OntarioÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢s roads and include:
1.Drivers caught driving with a driverÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢s licence that is already under specific HTA suspension(s) - including those related to default of family support, failure to complete remedial measures, ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Å“warn rangeÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Â (0.05 ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â€œ 0.08 Blood Alcohol Concentration), Novice Driver Escalating Sanctions Program, demerit point accumulations, and careless driving - but not including suspensions for defaulted fines or medical conditions;
2.Drivers required to have a vehicle ignition interlock device and are found driving without such a device; and
3.Drivers with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over .08 (or who fail/refuse to comply with a demand made by a police officer under S. 254 of the Criminal Code)
I assume you fall into one of these?
Just FYI, you may need to attend the police station first to get a release slip for your vehicle.
