    If getting the bike ready and getting around with it means you'd rather take the car? You have the wrong bike.

    Interesting. Michael Bryant used drinking after driving to dodge some of his charges. With the new laws, you can get convicted of drunk driving even if you were at 0.0 while driving. Shocking.

    So just don't answer the door.

    Someone called it in that my car was being driven erratically? Prove it was me.

    Some tool filed a report on my bike with YRP that I was riding erratically last year. Got a warning letter from YRP stating repeat second complaint will lead to a phone call from an officer, repeat third complaint will lead to a home visit. Not eager to find out what happens after that.

    They had no proof it was me riding.

    Funny thing, the date and time stated on the letter, I was no where near that area. I know because I was at work.

    I imagine a good lawyer would punch enough holes in cases like that to establish enough reasonable doubt for acquittal. Still BS for the amount of grief and cost you would have to go through. Hope they fix it.
    Can't we settle this over a pint?

    Seems like another feel good law that does nothing to me.

    The person complaining just took it to one extreme end of the spectrum.

    Chances are that the last person you visited, friend or bartender, is in no way going to say that they sent you to your car sloshing drunk.
    Ignorance is curable, Apathy not so much, but I don't care, I'll try anyway.

    Everyone likes to think that they may be the smartest person in the room, but sometimes that only occurs when we're alone!

    If the police apply this in the manner that I suspect it was intended for - i.e. random officer pulls you over but doesn't have the instrumentation in his own patrol car, and it takes some time for either said instrumentation to arrive at the site or for the person in question to be brought to the instrumentation, thus the police have complete "chain of custody" between seeing the driver driving and measuring their alcohol level - there won't be either an opportunity or a need to challenge this - and rightly so.

    If, on the other hand, the police apply this in the way some are suggesting is possible - without a complete chain of custody between the driving and the drinking - it's going to get challenged, and rightly so.

    Just because the legislation has been written doesn't mean it will survive a constitution challenge. If someone, were to challenge this I can imagine some pretty high priced lawyers, will do the work pro bono, just to get it tossed, (rightfully so).

    That's the problem....we are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. According to the OP link, the individual has to prove their innocence.

    It is incredibly expensive to go all the way to the Supreme Court, and that's likely where this will need to go. The track record of Canadian courts sticking up for individual rights has not been good. They tend to err on the side of security. The better thing to do would be to vote that idiot Trudeau out of office, since he's a dam authoritarian anyway.

    good rule in life
    never invite the police into your house (unless you called them)
    they will ask, always say no and close the door

    Hopefully they won't stick their foot in the door like those water heater scumbags.

    don't flatter the liberals or conservatives with poorly written legislation...it is deliberate.
