"Drinking and Driving" Liquor / Beer / Wine Tip by Suzanne123

Liquor / Beer / Wine, Toronto: 10 reviews and 3 photos

This is not tolerated at all. Mostly during the Christmas season, but also at anytime of the year when bars close at 2 am there are "ride" spot checks. Drivers get stopped by police for 'spot checks'. Drivers may be asked to provide a breath test to check alcohol levels. If it is high one may be ticketed, license suspended, car impounded, and/or taken into custody. It is against the law to refuse the test. Groups of people partying will select a person to be "the designated driver" who will be the person to abstain from drinking thus one is able to drive everyone home safely. Otherwise people pile into a taxi to get home safe.
