B.C. criticized for considering changing drinking and driving penalties

British Columbia Solicitor General Rich Coleman denies that a new discussion paper suggests that drunk driving be decriminalized in the province.

The paper includes a plan that would spare some drinking drivers from criminal records. A new alcohol-related offence would be established under the Motor Vehicle Act that could be used by police if they don’t consider criminal charges to be warranted.

Some drunk drivers would have the option of pleading guilty to the provincial offence rather than face criminal charges in court.
