REFUSAL OF ROADSIDE TEST

Refusal Of Roadside Test

If you are convicted for refusing to submit to a roadside alcohol screening, you will face the same penalties as for impaired driving or driving over 80. For a first-time offender, these include suspension of your driver’s licence for one year, a fine and significantly higher insurance rates. In addition, you will have a criminal record. The message is clear: you need a strong and effective defence.

At Neuberger & Partners LLP, in Toronto, Ontario, we are advocates for people accused of refusal to blow, impaired driving, driving over 80 and other traffic offences. Our lawyers have a record of success* in these types of cases, and we will work tirelessly to defend you. Call us at 416-364-3111 to discuss your case with an experienced lawyer.

Defence of Roadside Refusal Cases

Even if you refused a roadside test, there may be defences for your case based on other factors. Our lawyers will thoroughly scrutinize the events leading to you being stopped, seeking a basis for having the charge dismissed. Possible defences include:

  • Lack of reasonable suspicion for stopping you — If the police did not have a probable cause to pull your vehicle over, it may be possible to have your case dismissed.
  • Denial of your Charter rights — When you are under investigation or being accused of a crime, you have rights. This includes your right to counsel. A violation of those rights could result in the dismissal of the charges against you.
  • Other defences — Upon close examination, the facts of your situation may reveal additional defences against the charges you face. Our lawyers will work diligently to uncover any possible defences to create a comprehensive defence strategy.

Since our founding in 1992, we have successfully defended many people* accused of impaired driving, refusal of a roadside test and other offences. Our firm is committed to providing vigorous, results-oriented representation for every client. We will explore every possible defence in your case, seeking the best result for you.
