Simply put, the offence of impaired driving consists of operating a motor vehicle, vessel or aircraft while your ability to do so is impaired by alcohol or drug. Notice that this offence does not necessarily involve alcohol, a person may be charged with impaired driving if his ability to drive is impaired by drugs as well.
In case of impaired driving, we are not really concerned with the level of alcohol in the accused’s blood but only with the effect of alcohol or other intoxicating substance on the accused’s ability to drive. In other words, some people may be impaired even with low level of alcohol in their system while others may not be impaired eventhough the level of alcohol in their blood far exceeds the legal limit.
