Oshawa Drunk Driving DUI Defence Lawyers

Most people think of impaired driving as simple to define: operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. The truth is that it is much more difficult to precisely define impaired driving charges. There are many different types of charges that fall under the category of impaired driving, and substances other than alcohol may be involved.
