Protect Your Rights & Reputation from Drug Charges in Windsor, Ontario

Like being charged for being under the influence of alcohol, you can be charged under Canada's criminal code for drug impairment when operating a motor vehicle. This not only includes illegal substances, but extends to prescription drugs too, as both types can impair the safe operation of a vehicle.

If you're in the care of, or operating a motor vehicle, whether it is in motion or not and you are impaired, you can be charged with impaired driving in Ontario. Note that a motor vehicle isn't limited to cars, trucks, or other vehicles on the road, but snowmobiles, all terrain vehicles (ATV), boats and even aircraft and railway equipment as well.

When a police officer or authority figure has reasonable grounds to think that you might be impaired by drugs, they can demand you submit for an evaluation to confirm if you are impaired by the drugs, or a combination of alcohol and drugs. Failure to comply with the demand will result in criminal charges, which carry the same penalty as driving while impaired.
