Man charged with impaired driving after strange and fatal crash

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drunk Driving on Sunday June 11, 2017.

Sometimes what begins as simply a poor decision can spiral out of control and turn into something far worse. Recently, a very peculiar accident in the west end of Toronto turned a simple case of alleged impaired driving into a tragedy. The driver now faces several charges, including one for manslaughter. The accident happened June 7, just before 5 a.m. An SUV heading north on Black Creek Drive apparently made a left...

Toronto driver hits pedestrians, suspected of impaired driving

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drunk Driving on Thursday June 08, 2017.

A lapse in judgment can happen to anyone, and likely has happened to nearly everyone at some point. When that lapse allegedly results in a traffic accident, and people are hurt, a person may find him or herself in serious trouble with the law. A Toronto driver suspected of impaired driving is in that situation now, a situation that may be familiar to others. The accident happened on June 3, at around...

Impaired driving charges for man riding e-bike

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drunk Driving on Wednesday May 10, 2017.

After a person has consumed alcohol, it is always a good choice to not get behind the wheel of an automobile, or to attempt to ride a motorcycle. As it turns out, however, there are other ways to end up with an impaired drivingcharge in Ontario. A man faces multiple charges after he took to the streets on two wheels after having a few drinks. On April 29, a OPP officer...

Setting laws for driving under the influence of pot will be tough

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drunk Driving on Wednesday May 10, 2017.

As most Canadians are aware, the federal government has vowed to legalize marijuana in this country. Part of the plan includes changes to laws covering driving under the influence of drugs in Ontario and across Canada. While the need to regulate driving while high is obvious, how it can be accomplished is less clear. Some experts believe it will be very difficult to establish legal limits for pot impairment. The plan is...

New bill could allow police more leeway to stop impaired driving

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drunk Driving on Wednesday April 26, 2017.

In most cases, simple suspicion is insufficient grounds for a police officer to detain a citizen. Probable cause is required in most instances before an officer may probe a matter further. Proposed new federal legislation may give police the right to partially circumvent that necessity in an effort to reduce impaired driving in Ontario, and across the country. As the law currently stands, a police officer may only administer a sobriety test...

New regulations coming for driving under the influence of pot?

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drunk Driving on Tuesday April 04, 2017.

As the federal government moves closer to legalizing marijuana, the scramble continues to try and effectively deal with pot and how it affects drivers. The latest available information indicates a date of July 1, 2018 for legalization, leaving little time to establish testing protocols and legislation of legal limits. While driving under the influence of drugs is already illegal in Ontario, it is still a complex subject. The MP most...

Charges can pile up after a drinking and driving arrest

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drunk Driving on Saturday March 25, 2017.

Not every story of alleged drunk driving ends with a catastrophic collision. However, many of them do end with an arrest. Sometimes, people accused of drinking and driving face multiple charges and may have a difficult legal ordeal ahead. Such is the case with a woman arrested not far from Toronto just recently. On March 19, a police officer in Brantford saw a vehicle collide with a parked vehicle at around 2:20...

Big rig operator suspected of driving under the influence

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drunk Driving on Friday March 24, 2017.

When the Ontario Provincial Police pull a driver over, there could be several reasons. While a driver might be suspected of driving under the influence, officers still have to determine whether the vehicle operator is in fact impaired and, if so, by what. Any driver who faces charges for driving under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs or even prescribed medication could end up facing severe consequences if convicted. OPP...
