Many people don’t realize that a DUI is considered a criminal offence unitl it happens to them or to a person they care about. Other similar criminal offences in the same category include driving over 80 milligrams, driving while ability impaired, care and control of a motor vehicle and refusal to provide a breath sample.
People are astonished at the huge costs of getting a DUI which include higher insurance costs, fines, interlock device and back on track program.
Whether you live in Vancouver BC or St. John’s Newfoundland and every city and town in between, if you are convicted of driving while ability impaired then you will get a criminal conviction.
Pardons Canada helps people across the entire country to obtain a pardon or record suspension so that once approved the criminal record can no longer be seen by the public. Here is a recent email thank you from a person living in BC whom we helped to remove her DUI:
“The decision by the government to grant me my Pardon/Record Suspension is having a big positive impact on my life in at least 2 ways. First, being in my late fifties and currently unemployed and still having a ways to go in reaching my retirement goals, I am very relieved of any concern that my record will hold me back from finding gainful employment that might require a criminal records background check or international travel. Second, I am free to travel to the United States to visit my sister and her family without worry.”
“There may be additional benefit in the coming years should I want to travel on vacation to any of a number of places around the world without any worry of being held back because of a criminal record. I am so grateful to Pardons Canada for making this positive change in my life a reality.”
