Young Driver Challenges Law


TORONTO — It appears as though a recently enacted drinking and driving law in Ontario, which bans any driver under the age of 22 from having any blood alcohol whatsoever, will be challenged on its constitutional merit, by 20-year-old Toronto resident Kevin Wiener.

According to the CBC News, Wiener plans to make a case to the Ontario Superior Court of Justice that the law as it stands is unconstitutional, as it discriminates based on age. Instead, Wiener says the law should be based on driving experience, which would include some older, but less experienced drivers.

The new rule, which came into effect last week, also has serious potential rules of service implications for the bar and restaurant industry.
