Changes to impaired driving laws
Alberta’s impaired driving laws are changing effective December 1, 2020. A new Roadside Sanction program will keep our roads safer by providing serious and immediate consequences for all impaired drivers. Read Freeing up police and courts to make Alberta safer for more information.
Demerit points are recorded against your driving record when you are convicted of a driving offence. For more information, see Demerit points – Overview.
