“Warn-Range” Suspension

Drivers who register a blood-alcohol concentration in the “warn range” of .05 to .08 pose an immediate danger to themselves and other road users. If caught driving in the warn range, you will receive an immediate driver’s licence suspension at the roadside. If you fail a roadside sobriety test or violate the zero tolerance policy for young, novice or commercial drivers you will face;
· A 3 day licence suspension for a first occurrence
· A 7 day licence suspension for a second occurrence, and you must undergo a remedial alcohol-education program
· A 30 day licence suspension for a third offence, and you must undergo a remedial alcohol-education program
· Substantially increased penalties and sanctions for each subsequent occurrence
Cost of licence reinstatement – $281
