Changes to New Brunswick Laws

The New Brunswick justice system is giving drivers yet another reason not to have that second drink.
Now drivers who test between 0.5 and 0.8% blood alcohol level will receive license suspension. While maintaining the 0.8 percent is the level for criminal charges, drivers will lose their license for one week if they test between 0.5-0.8 on a Breathalyzer test.
Drinking and driving already comes with such a hefty price tag, the law just made it steeper by raising the minimum fine to $2000.00, up from 1150.00. At this point some of the New Brunswick Judges are looking to instill a minimum jail sentence.
Hoping that upping the consequence will further deter drinking and driving. To avoid any drinking and driving consequences prepare yourself with the convenient and accurate BacTrack Element breathalyzer. This compact breathalyzer features fuel cell technology and police grade sensor.
