Juvenile Impaired Driving Lawyer
As for many parts of Canada, in Calgary, Alberta, the legal age to consume alcohol is 18, with a legal limit of .08 blood alcohol content. Let’s face it, that doesn’t mean your children are complying with the law.
If you are under the age of 18, and caught drinking and driving in Calgary or the surrounding area, you should know Canada has a zero tolerance law for juvenile impaired driving. If caught drinking and driving, you will be facing severe legal and administrative penalties.
