Failure or Refusal to Provide a Breath Sample
Refusal to provide a breath sample is an offence according to the Criminal Code of Canada. If a police offices asks you to provide a breath sample, and you do not comply, you could face criminal charges.
If convicted of failure to provide a breath sample, you will face the same penalties as if you were found guilty of impaired driving or an over 80 charge. This means you may be subject to licence suspension, fines and a criminal record.
However, there are many possible defenses when it comes to cases of failing to provide a breath sample. Only a skilled lawyer with experience in defending these types of cases can help you determine the best defence for your particular situation. At Mavericks, our in-house Impaired Driving lawyer, Adam Little, will carefully examine the circumstances, including whether the demand for a breath sample was lawful, if the equipment was in working order, and many other technical details to discover which approach will be most successful.
