He Knows When You’ve Been Drinking!

 

Mandatory Roadside drug-impaired testing is coming to Canada.

It will soon be a thing of the past when a police officer needs “reasonable suspicion” that a driver has drugs or alcohol in his or her blood in order to request a roadside breath test.

The proposed Bill B-C46 allows for Mandatory alcohol screening, also known as, “random testing” will allow for drivers to be requested to take the test, at any traffic stop, without the police officer having any grounds.

There are two sides of this proposed bill, some say it will reduce impaired driving while others say it will breach our constitutional rights.

Only time will tell if this bill passes and the affect it will have on the judicial system.
