Impaired Driving... DON'T DO IT

Alcohol Impaired Driving

As the holidays are approaching, alcohol consumption

is at its peak. Everyone goes to visit friends and family,

and because it’s such a joyous, festive, celebratory time

of year, they have a drink… or more. As much fun as it

is to be able to have fun with your friends and family,

partying and drinking, you need to be able to get home

safely without endangering yourself and those around

you. When it comes to BAC’s (Blood Alcohol Concentration) there are specifics to what it

can or cannot be. For example, in Ontario, a fully licenced class G driver may only have a

BAC of 0.05 or below. A person with a BAC between 0.05 and 0.08, the driver’s car may

be towed, and you may be fined, and a BAC above 0.08, it is considered criminal. If a

driver has a G1 or G2 licence or is under the age of 21 (even with a full class G license),

their BAC must be 0. If you do not live in Ontario, you should check the laws in your

province or territory as these laws vary. If you want to be

able to drink and not worry about having to get home,

there are alternate options as to what you can do to

safely to get home without putting yourself and others at

danger. Remember that even if you are only a passenger,

never accept a ride from a person who has had too much

to drink. Below are some alternate options.

Drug Impaired Driving

When it comes to drugs, (marijuana, edibles etc.) you need to be

careful where you get them from. There are people who mix

drugs or lace them and sell them to whoever and if you get your


hands on some of these, it is very

dangerous for you to take. Drug

Impaired Driving is also a serious

offence never drive while under the influence of drugs.

Alternate Options

Call a Taxi or order an Uber

This is a very popular option that is very simple and is most people's

top choice.

Assign a Designated Driver


If you take an Uber, you will still have to go back to and retrieve

your vehicle if you drove there. To avoid the hassle, assign a friend

or family member who won't drink. Have them to drive you to the

party or gathering, and drive you home.

Canada Drunk Driving


If all parties want to drink and don't want

to leave their vehicle, this is the best

option. You can either call them, on the

night of, or you can arrange your trip in advance on their website. Two people will come

in one vehicle and one will drive you home while the other will drive your vehicle home.

Remember to stay safe and never drive under the influence!
