Drinking and Driving

BC law makes driving after having only one drink (.05) grounds for them to take your license and drinking in public is not allowed.  For drivers found to have a blood-alcohol level of between 0.05 and 0.08, the so-called “warning” range, there will be an immediate three-day driving ban, possible vehicle impoundment and fines or related fees of up to $600. Those caught in this warning range multiple times will face a driving ban of up to 30 days and fines or fees of up to $800.
