Repeat Suspended Driver Gets 14 days


CC: s.249(4) – Drive while Disqualified, TSA: s.94(2) – Drive while Unauthorized, CC: s.145(5) – Fail to Attend Court.


My client’s licence was suspended for an impaired conviction. A few months later, he was caught driving again. He had a long and related record, meaning that he has done this before. The Crown was initially seeking a period of jail for 30-60 days.


He received a sentence of 14 days, which he was able to serve on weekends only. That way, he could maintain his employment and not suffer any financial prejudice.
