Vancouver Criminal Lawyer: Cathryn Moore

90 Day IRP

The Facts:

The driver was stopped by the police after a report by a concerned citizen about a suspected impaired driver. The officer stated that the driver had a strong odour of liquor on the breath and speech was slightly slurred. The driver only provided one breath sample that registered a fail. The officer stated that the driver declined the second test.

The Argument:

The driver did not decline their right to provide a second sample.

The Result:

“The officer has provided insufficient evidence to support that you declined your right to a second analysis”

The 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition was revoked and the vehicle was released.
