IMMEDIATE ROADSIDE PROHIBITIONS

Immediate Roadside Prohibitions (IRPs) require your immediate action. When you are served with an IRP, you do not have the right to a trial. You do not have much time to prepare. The filing deadline to challenge IRPs is only seven days. Instead of attending court, you must defend yourself either in writing or in a 30-minute teleconference hearing before a government employee. Unlike a criminal trial or traffic court hearing, the burden of proof is on you to disprove the government’s case.

Unfortunately, most people who dispute IRPs on their own lose their cases. This is because the defences for these cases tend to be complex and require significant legal knowledge and experience and the time to prepare for a hearing is extremely short. The consequences for losing an IRP hearing are immense: not only will you face a prohibition, but you will likely be compelled to complete a remedial program—such as the Responsible Driver Program and/or the Ignition Interlock Program—as well. Furthermore, many people end up losing their jobs and their reputations as a result of these prohibitions.

If you receive an IRP, it is important to seek legal advice before the seven-day limitation period runs out. ATAC LAW prides itself on being one of the province’s premier driving law firms and is here to help. If you have received an IRP, call or email us today to set up your initial consultation.
