Quebec Government Requests To Introduce Random Roadside Breath Tests
Posted by The Breathalyzer Team on 2/7/2012 to Canadian Law

Quebec may be the next to enforce Random Breath Tests along the roadside.

Educ’alcool is a program designed to bring awareness and education to youth and adults regarding alcohol and its effects. Educ’alcool’s board of directors includes educators, as well as members of the alcoholic beverage industry and various public health groups. The program has researched the pros and cons and based its value on the success of other similar programs, such as the one in Ireland, which has reduced drinking and driving by 23%, and in New South Wales, where the rate of drunk driving has dropped by 36%. 

66% of Canadians agree that Random Breath Tests should be implemented on the roadside.

The Quebec government has recently requested that the Federal Government legalize Random Breath Tests. Currently, Quebec follows the Canadian Criminal Code; that is, if a driver has a blood alcohol content of over .08%, he or she will receive a 90-day suspension. Novice drivers, on the other hand, cannot have any alcohol in their blood when operating a vehicle.

The only opposition to Random Breath Tests would be the violation of civil rights, since the Charter of Rights and Freedoms states that people shall be free from unreasonable search and seizure.

Be safe.

Arm yourself with prevention.

Check your blood alcohol content before getting behind the wheel.
