CANADA — What’s that knock at the door? It’s potentially a police officer demanding a random breathalyzer test, up to two hours after you stopped driving, Global News suggests.
The national broadcaster broke the news yesterday that Canadian police weren’t just empowered last month to randomly make any driver blow into the machine (no just cause required anymore), they can also make the same random demand of anyone at home, in a restaurant, at the golf course, etc., if they believe you’ve been behind the wheel within the previous two hours. Refusing to comply is a criminal offence. See the Global News video report above.
