Visiting Ontario with ignition interlock restriction in BC

Unread post by visitor1269 on

I live in BC and I'm planning a visit to Toronto for a week. I have ignition interlock restriction on my BC License for driving over .08, but I was not charged under the Criminal Code of Canada. I was instead handed a Conditional Discharge for dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.

My question is, while visiting Toronto, am I required to drive a vehicle with an interlock system installed? Or can I drive a vehicle without one?


Thanks in advance

Yes you need an interlock device. Whatever conditions on your license are the same wherever you take it.

If you received a conditional discharge for dangerous operation you were in fact charged under the Criminal Code. Driving without an interlock in Ontario could in fact net you a Drive Disqualified charge or depending on your conditional discharge, reactivate that sentencing.

HTA 41.2(13)(b) - drive motor vehicle - not equipped with ignition interlock device
NSF - no set fine, which means a court date, fine of $200 - $1000
