Court throws out driving suspension of naked drunk man

A British Columbia man found inebriated and naked in the driver’s seat of his van has had his roadside suspension thrown out by a judge who said the appeals system unfairly favours the police officers.

 

The decision is the latest in a string of Supreme Court judgments critical of B.C.’s drunk-driving laws, which came into force in 2010. The laws allow police officers to issue immediate 90-day roadside prohibitions based on blood-alcohol concentrations registered by a breath sample.
