The Penalties You Face

Minimum penalties for a first-time offender will include a criminal record, suspension of your driving privileges for a year, and a $1,000 fine. If you’re facing a second offence, the consequences can include mandatory jail terms and the suspension of your driver’s license for up to three years. Regardless if it’s your first or subsequent offense conviction, you are also facing consequences that can include costs associated with the installation of an Ignition Interlock System in your vehicle, costs of counselling programs, and a substantial increase in your auto insurance rates.
