Make changes to the law on impaired driving

This petition had 18 supporters

In British Columbia, as it stands, the vehicle driven by a person found to be impaired is seized and impounded, whether or not it belongs to the driver. There is no way for the owner of the vehicle (or the driver) to be heard by a judge. These cases should be tried in court, not decided by government employees. The idea is that the vehicle owner will recover costs from the driver, but this is often impossible, and an innocent citizen is deprived of his/her property and caused great expense in paying for towing, impound fees and rental of a vehicle. There is no redress in court. This must be changed.
