Dealing with Driving Offences in Ottawa, Ontario

Impaired Driving

After being stopped and arrested for impaired driving in Ottawa, knowing what is involved is important and can help ease your fears about the process. You may have questions about your driver’s license, your criminal record and whether you will face large fines and jail time.

At Engel & Associates, we can help to defend your rights if you have been stopped for impaired driving or a related charge in Ontario. Our lawyers have achieved countless victories for our clients who have been charged with these offences by getting the consequences minimized or reduced.

Over 80

In Ontario, people who drive under the influence of alcohol are often charged with both impaired driving and “Over 80.” Over 80 refers to driving with more than 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood. A conviction for any drunk driving charge can come with significant penalties, including fines and a permanent criminal record for a first offence.

At Engel & Associates, our lawyers have more than 20 years of combined experience in criminal defence, including defence for charges of Over 80 and other drunk driving offences. We will listen to your side of the story and work to reduce or dismiss the penalties that you are facing.

Dangerous/Careless Driving

In Canada, dangerous driving is a criminal offence that comes with serious penalties. Careless driving is not a criminal offence, but it is one of the most serious offences under the Highway Traffic Act. Both charges can impact your insurance rates and your driving privileges. Both charges also need to be taken seriously, and it is advisable to speak with an experienced lawyer in either case.

You do not have to stand alone against the criminal justice system. At Engel & Associates, we can help defend you against dangerous driving or careless driving charges in Ontario. We will make sure your side of the story is heard and your rights are protected throughout the criminal justice process.
