“Over 80” and “Driving with Excess Blood Alcohol” are the same thing. Specifically, they are a criminal charge, and refer to an accused person who has operated a motor vehicle with more than 80 milligrams of alcohol in their blood. We often hear people say, “I wasn’t drunk. How could they charge me with Driving with Excess Blood Alcohol?”
Every individual charged with a criminal offence will receive a “disclosure” package. The primary purpose of disclosure is to ensure that an Accused party knows the case to be met, and is able to make full answer and defence. Generally, the Crown has an obligation to disclose all information in its possession and control unless said information is clearly irrelevant or subject to a claim of privilege.
With the abundance of lakes and rivers that we have in Ontario, boating is a common past-time enjoyed by many. Whether for fishing, water-skiing, or plain relaxing, being on a boat is a great way to spend a hot summer day. However, this is where some get a bit too comfortable. Hot summer day, you said? Why not bring some ice cold beers along for the boat ride? Wrong! There is a lot more to it.
