Driving With a Suspended Licence Could Cost
You Your Vehicle - Commercial Motor Vehicles
Starting December 1st, 2010, police will have more tools to get suspended and impaired drivers off the road. This change will also mean added enforcement against people who have had their driver's licences suspended for consistently not paying family support.
Commercial motor vehicle operators will be treated differently than passenger vehicle operators. Under the new regulations announced by the Ministry of Transportation (MTO), commercial motor vehicle operators caught driving under an HTA-related suspension, including default of family support, will not be subject to a 7-day impoundment if the driver's licence has been suspended for less than 100 days.
Carriers who check the status of their drivers' licences (every three months) should be able to catch any suspended drivers in time to ensure that they do not run the risk of having their equipment impounded.
The new 7-day vehicle impoundment will apply to drivers whose licences are suspended for:
- Driving while under certain Highway Traffic Act licence suspensions including non-payment of family support
- Driving with a blood alcohol concentration over .08 (beyond the legal limit) or for failing/refusing to provide a breath sample
- Driving without an ignition interlock device when one is required.
