Customer Question

I had been stopped by police while driving and charged with a DUI. My record shows that I was also suspended from driving for 24hrs as well as 90days after the fact for refusing to give a sample.
I had fought the charge and won my case. The crown had no case and it was subsequently thrown out of court.
I noticed on my Drivers abstract that the suspensions were on my record.
If I wasn't convicted of the charge, then how can they leave the suspensions on my record?
Thanks,

The suspensions were administrative suspensions imposed by the province and not under the Criminal Code.

If you did not appeal the suspensions when you received them then they are valid and would appear on your driver's record.
