Posts 6 and 28 are spot on...in .what other "free democracy" can you have your property confiscated by the state for not breaking the law...?
The corrupt RCMP must be kicked out of the west asap,,, a national police should not be checking seat belts and giving speeding tickets..
Sure it does. Someone can just as easily run someone over while riding a horse or a bicycle. People can get up to a pretty good clip riding a bike, and if you crash into someone walking you can seriously hurt them, or even kill them. So, yes, they should be charged with impaired just like if they were driving a car.
Why stop there? People can get up to a pretty dangerous speed just by running, lots of people have been injured by collisions with joggers. Let's start charging people with impaired running. Heck, they have to walk before they can run, might as well charge them with impaired walking before they get the chance to injure someone. Driving a car, running, what's the difference if you are drunk?
In British Columbia at .05 A non-criminal law Will confiscate your car for 10 days Give you a $2000 fine And force you To put Alcohol interlock device on your car...............And you cannot Fight the decision With a lawyer and a judge in a court of law......Because the cop is the judge jury and executioner at the roadside...............And you have not Broken Any criminal law..........
The British Columbia Liberal government are collecting massive amounts of fines from people that have not technically even broken the law
And don't tell me taking .05 drivers off the road is lowering the traffic fatalities.
How did they avoid collisions and killing people in daze of yore?
I still feel that all new cars should be equipped with a device that will not start a car with a person under the influence of .08 plus alcohol. Problem solved. A sober person may drive but not the inebrieted one. If someone who has already been cited for drunk driving in an older car should have to pay to have their car equipped with such a device before driving it again. Drunk driving is not the great story telling joke it used to be. After all, years ago, one merely ended up in the ditch and because of the alcohol content only came out stiff and sore and perhaps a wrecked car. Nowadays, it kills other people. It is no longer a joke, except amongst the mentally deficient or old rednecks.
