The first DUI offence involving an electric scooter was successfully prosecuted by the City Attorney’s office in Toronto in 2020 wherein a 64-year-old pedestrian was knocked over by a 28-year-old man who was riding an electric scooter while having a blood alcohol level that is three times more than the legal limit. The electric scooter’s rider was sentenced to 36 months of probation, ordered to pay restitution, fined $550, and was required to complete a DUI program upon conviction.
Under the Canadian Criminal Code, DUI offences are characterized as serious criminal offences and as such, can have significant effects on immigrants in Canada as well as people who are seeking Canadian citizenship. In fact, people who are permanent residents in Canada can face deportation as well as a change in status if they are convicted of a DUI.
The majority of households in Canada own a pet. For people who own a pet, they feel that their pets are part of their family. The pets are there when they wake up, when they start their day, and as part of their daily routine. Since a lot of people already have a life that includes details related to caring for their pets, why not just bring their pets to work?
