Assume the position.

I had a friend caught 7 years ago and just recently started driving again because his insurance was too high.

Of course, he flipped his mustang and knocked down a few telephone poles.

get a good experienced lawyer. it will cost you, but they can make the DUI seem like it never happened.

cops make mistakes, and when your rights are compromised by their mistakes, you can use it to your advantage.

The legal limit for driving is 50 BAC. Above that level your license can be subject to 12-hour suspension. The 50 BAC marks the start of a type of forbidden but not yet "criminal" impaired range at which you are over the legal limit to drive, but still below the 80 BAC at which criminal proceedings can kick in.

You registered at 105 and 110, both of which are more than double the 50 BAC limit at which you should not be driving. The cop did the right thing. You did the wrong thing. Now you get to do the court thing.

Next time, keep in mind that a taxi cab is much cheaper than the costs of legal defence fees and/or the costs of criminal conviction, fines, and license suspension. It's also a lot cheaper than the costs arising from a crash in which you injure or kill some innocent because you "thought" you were still "ok" to drive.

And yes, this is harsh, but after all the awareness campaigns over the last 20 years as to the effects of drinking and driving, there are simply no excuses left for anyone who gets caught driving impaired.

105 and 110? holy ****...

reguardless of tolerance, you are way way way over the legal limit. and not by a small amount. it's not like you blew a 82....

hope you can afford a crazy *** lawyer, that's the only hope you have.....once your ins company gets a hold of this, they may just cancel you on the spot.

agreed, but I would have put it a whole lot nastier to say you're a dumb ***. I just had to go through this when my friend was T-boned by a drunk driver that ran a red light. Was it really worth it? I could careless if he could have let you go or now. You broke the law, you made, imo, the worst mistake you can make behind the wheel, and now you have to suffer the consequences.

For all those with the good advice thanks, and for all you smart asses commenting on this issue buzz off. I realize what a mistake it was and im trying to revive from it, and no1 learned a bigger lesson through all this but me. BTW for those of you with lack of understanding about the reading ...(.105) and (.110) is not that big of a rating compared to the legal limit of (.08)

According to Ontario provincial law, the legal limit in Ontario is .05. Reach that and your license can be suspended on the spot.

(2) Where, upon demand of a police officer made under section 254 of the Criminal Code (Canada), the driver of a motor vehicle or the operator of a vessel provides a sample of breath which, on analysis by an approved screening device as defined in that section, registers ďWarnĒ or ďAlertĒ or otherwise indicates that the concentration of alcohol in the personís blood is 50 milligrams or more of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood, the police officer may request that the person surrender his or her driverís licence.

(3) Where, upon demand of a police officer made under section 254 of the Criminal Code (Canada), the driver of a motor vehicle or the operator of a vessel provides a sample of breath which, on analysis by an instrument approved as suitable for the purpose of section 254 of the Criminal Code (Canada), indicates that the concentration of alcohol in his or her blood is 50 milligrams or more of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood, a police officer may request that the person surrender his or her driverís licence.

Licence suspension

(4) Upon a request being made under subsection (2) or (3), the person to whom the request is made shall forthwith surrender his or her driverís licence to the police officer and, whether or not the person is unable or fails to surrender the licence to the police officer, his or her driverís licence is suspended from the time the request is made for the period of time
and
(14) A driverís licence suspended under subsection (4) shall be suspended for,

(a) three days, in the case of a first suspension under this section;

(b) seven days, in the case of a second suspension under this section;

(c) 30 days, in the case of a third or subsequent suspension under this section.
You were more than double that provincial limit. You should not have been driving, period.

If you go past the provincial legal limit and reach .08, it then also becomes a criminal offence under Canadian law. You complain about only being a "little" over, but even by Canadian Criminal Code standards, you were a significant percentage above the .08 level, and well into the realm of criminal impairment.

Tell us, at what BAC level do YOU think we should just let criminally impaired drivers off with a warning?

You must be really retarded to keep repeating the facts marker. We have established the facts on numerous accounts. I am not disputing what I did was right , I was just trying to get some advice on how it will affect my insurance.

What's retarded is that you just don't get what the permissible BAC really is these days, as your previous post indicates.

Once again, and read this carefully, the legal limit in Ontario is .05 BAC, and you were more than double that. Sure, some blow bigger that you did, but that doesn't make what you did excusable.

As for your insurance, on conviction it's going to probably double for the next 5 years. The good news is that your license will be under suspension for at least the first year of those five years, so think of all the money you'll save in that year you can't drive.
