Alcohol Impaired Driving

Impaired driving continues to be a major contributor to fatalities and serious injuries on Canadian roads, particularly for young drivers.

  • If you drive with a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of .08 or higher you will receive criminal charges and have your license suspended for 90 days -- plus your vehicle will be seized for a minimum of 30 days.

The Department of Highways and Public Works is proud to support a local project that allowed two local high school students to create some powerful anti-drinking and driving messages for their peers.

Skyler Isaac and Marcus Cammidge received assistance from professional filmmakers to write, direct and edit a short film on the consequences of drinking and driving. The films have been released on YouTube and can be viewed and commented on at the following links.

"Bad Friends" - by Skyler Isaac from FH Collins Secondary School.

"I'll be Fine" - by Marcus Cammidge from Porter Creek Secondary School.
