B.C. judge dismisses drunk-driving law challenge, saying it protects public

A B.C. Supreme Court judge has dismissed a constitutional challenge of the province’s amended drunk-driving laws, saying they’re designed to protect the public, not the rights of individual drivers.


Justice Malcolm Macaulay says in his ruling that the 2012 changes to a law are more reasonable because they require an officer to inform the driver of the right to a second breathalyzer test and expands the grounds for review by the superintendent of motor vehicles.
