Since July 2012, anyone charged with
driving “over 80,”
failing to provide a breath sample, or
refusing to provide a breath sample
has been subject to an immediate and indefinite suspension of their driver’s licence, pursuant to the Traffic Safety Act.
This means that if you are charged with any alcohol related offence, the Alberta Government will immediately revoke your driving privileges, without any trial. You will not be able to apply for your licence again until your charges have been dealt with before the Courts.
This suspension can be appealed to the Alberta Transportation Safety Board, however, you are under a very short deadline – you only have 30 days to file your appeal application.
This is a deadline you cannot afford to miss. If you have been charged, let our team of experienced defence lawyers help you review your information and discuss your options moving forward. We know how important your licence is to you, and it is our primary goal to make sure you get it back as soon as possible.
Our team of lawyers is available to assist you with the suspension appeal process by:
Assisting you complete and submit the required paperwork;
Researching your specific case and preparing both written and oral submissions on your behalf; and
Representing you before the Transportation Safety Board at an oral appeal hearing.
