B.C. court backs drunk-driving bans

The B.C. Court of Appeal has upheld the province’s ability to impose immediate roadside prohibitions for drunk driving. The ruling means police can still ban anyone from driving for up to 90 days if they “fail” a roadside screening.


In her decision Monday, Justice Catherine Anne Ryan ruled police could continue enforcing roadside prohibitions, which also include three-to-30-day bans for those who blow in the “warn” range of 50 to 80 milligrams.
