Defending Ontario Impaired Driving Charges

In any impaired driving case, there may be one or more defences that could lead to the dismissal of the charge or a reduction to a lesser offence. Among the most significant of these is the “Last Drink Defence,” sometimes called the “Bolus Drink Defence” or “Rising Blood Alcohol Defence.” While the defence is simple in concept, developing it can be a highly complex undertaking, requiring investigation and analysis by experts in blood chemistry, toxicology, alcohol testing and other disciplines.

At the Impaired Driving Defence Centre, we have successfully employed the Last Drink Defence in a number of cases. Our lawyers have extensive experience in impaired driving cases and the development of successfuldefence strategies*. In your case, we will work diligently to build a strong and successful defence for you.

Impaired & Other Driving Offences

The Last Drink Defence

At the heart of the “Last Drink Defence” is the recognition that breath test results do not always indicate the true level of alcohol in the blood. Let’s say that you drink “one for the road” just before getting in your vehicle. If you are stopped for a roadside test, there may be a significant level of alcohol on your breath, even though the alcohol in your stomach has not been fully absorbed into your blood stream. With a careful analysis of the factors of time, the amount of alcohol you drank and the testing procedures used, along with other factors, it may be possible to show that you were not in violation of Section 253.

Our lawyers have made a careful study of the science of breath testing and alcohol absorption, and we have worked with many experts over the years. Our firm will provide tireless advocacy in the defence of your rights, seeking the best result for you.

Contact the Impaired Driving Defence Centre for a no-charge, 30-minute consultation with one of our Toronto last drink defence lawyers by calling 416-364-3111 or contact our office online.

Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results and that the amount recovered and other litigation outcomes will vary according to the facts in individual cases.
