Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, thank you for the question.
What have you been charged with? What's your court date?
When did this happen?
Did the police take you to the station for a proper breath test? What was the bac reading?
You haven't been found automatically guilty. The driving prohibition is mandatory upon being charged. Which tells me that you've been charged.
Check your paperwork carefully please and get back to me.
I'm here, Ann. I was out trying to serve some documents for a client.
I've done a bit of research, and haven't found out much.
I'm an Ontario lawyer and haven't come across this situation. It strikes me as very odd that you had an impounding and mandatory license suspension without being charged, I think you should check the paperwork again.
Having said that, I have no experience under BC's Motor Vehicle Act in seeking a review of the suspension. I think it's best if I opt out as your expert. There are one or two experts here who are from BC, if one is on the site tonight I'm sure that they'll pick up the thread.
If you don't get any results then you're free to contact the site and ask for a refund of your deposit. Don't forget about it.
