“Ontario’s Vehicle Impoundment Programs are aimed at making the province’s roads safer. In Ontario, drivers who operate a motor vehicle while under licence suspension can face one of two kinds of impoundment: Vehicles driven in Ontario by persons apprehended for driving while their licence is suspended for a Criminal Code conviction will be impounded for a minimum of 45 days;
Effective December 1, 2010, drivers caught driving with a driver’s licence that is already under a specific Highway Traffic Act (HTA) suspension(s) – including default of family support, but not including suspensions for defaulted fines or medical conditions* will have the vehicle they are driving impounded for seven days.
Also effective December 1, 2010: Impoundments for:
Drivers required to have a vehicle ignition interlock device and who are caught driving without such a device; and All drivers caught with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over 0.08 or who fail/refuse to comply with a demand (to provide a breath sample) made by a police officer under the Criminal Code of Canada (CCC).
These are in addition to the existing 7-day impoundment for drivers engaged in a race, stunt or contest on Ontario’s roadd.
