You can be charged with impaired driving if your ability to operate a motor vehicle is compromised by the effects of alcohol or drugs (for example, see here for our Barrie DUI lawyer’s discussion of what to expect if you are stopped for suspected marijuana–impaired driving).
Being charged with impaired driving is a stressful experience, especially if you are a first-time offender. Regardless of whether it is your first offence or not, it is highly recommended that you get legal advice from a criminal defence lawyer who specializes in representing people charged with drug-impaired and drunk driving. Barrie lawyer David Wilcox is an experienced criminal attorney who can guide you through the legal process, ensuring that your rights are protected and that you have explored all possible defences.
