The Brantford Police Service wants to remind everyone that Impaired Driving isn't a Laughing Matter, we must all take impaired driving seriously.  If you are caught and charged with impaired driving you could face serious consequences such as large fines, licence suspensions, criminal charges or even jail time if you drive impaired by alcohol, cannabis or other drugs.
Alcohol, cannabis and other drugs can cause a number of impairments that lead to a greater risk of car accidents. Even low blood-alcohol levels, small amounts of cannabis or other drugs can cause a level of intoxication which reduces reaction time, coordination and lowers inhibitions, which can cause drivers to make unwish choices.  Impaired driving isn't just a terrible idea, it's a crime. It's easy to avoid impaired driving, if you've been drinking or using cannabis, ask a sober friend, call a family member or call a cab for a ride. If you're planning a night out, plan for a safe way home. Your friends and family would rather you called them in order to make sure you get home safe or the cost of a cab ride home is nothing compared to the disastrous consequences of impaired driving.  It just isn’t worth it, make a plan and plan ahead to get home safe.
