A judge is wondering whether all cars should be equipped with an interlock device to help curb the number of impaired driving cases clogging the Ontario Court of Justice.
Justice Graham Wakefield was presiding in the Oshawa case of Malham Outri, who was charged – and ultimately acquiited – of driving while his blood was “over 80,” meaning more than 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood.
“Over 80′ charges consume a substantial amount of judicial resources in the Ontario Court of Justice,” Wakefield wrote in his judgement last month.
Should all cars be equipped with an interlock device? Do you think it would help cut down on drinking and driving?
