The law concerning impaired driving in Kitchener, over .08 and dangerous driving is very complicated. Impaired driving, also known as Driving Under the Influence (or DUI), is a criminal offence according to the Criminal Code of Canada.

The more promptly you act and contact Ritter Harvey Law, the better equipped you will be to tackle the charges against you.

Driving over .08 means that the vehicle driver has a blood-alcohol ratio of over 80 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood. Though drinking and driving are not illegal by itself, the matter gets aggravated by the refusal to provide a breath sample or the resultant impaired driving, causing death or bodily harm to individuals on the road.
The consequences of non-compliance with driving rules vary, though an impaired driving charge is criminal. A conviction for a driving offence could:
Result in a jail sentence or a fine
Burden you with a criminal record
Prohibit you from driving/suspend your licence
Drastically increase your insurance rates
Impact your future work/travel choices
