Driving Under the Influence

One of the things that Okotoks can do to help is to make addicts more aware of their addiction is by having the local RCMP be even more vigilant about spotting and arresting people driving under drug or alcohol influence. Canadian law dictates that anyone caught operating a vehicle with a blood-alcohol level that is higher than the legal limit can be charged. A conviction usually results in fines and a suspension of the person's license. Even if a person has not been drinking, but rather consuming illegal, mind inhibiting, drugs, they can be charged with driving under the influence. They can also be charged with additional penalties depending on the substance they consumed. However, the addict can get help with addiction through a drug rehab center.
