Footage from a Dash Cam has been used as evidence against a court appeal by a convicted drink driver in Edmonton, Alberta. The driver’s license had been suspended after impaired operation of a motor vehicle in Calgary, Alberta on August, 1st 2014; after reports of erratic lane swerving of the vehicle called in by two motorists on south bound Deer Foot Trail. Police were able to locate the vehicle then travelling on Anderson Road and initiate a traffic stop, “wherein the [driver] slows down, speeds up, slows down again, and then drives on the shoulder for 200 metres before stopping” said Cst. H of the CPS. Blood alcohol levels were then tested and determined to exceed 1.5%, approximately 2x above 0.08 percentile threshold.
During the driver’s court appeal on November, 25th 2014; several minutes of dash camera footage was submitted by one of two of the Calgarian drivers that initially called in the drunk driver. According to the case reports the vehicle can be seen weaving in and out of its lane, and towards the end of the footage a police van can be seen pulling in behind the vehicle with its line on. This footage was used alongside blood concentration levels, police reports and 911 call transcripts to deny the appeal and conclude blood alcohol concentration readings were more than double the legal limit which contributed to unsafe and erratic patterns of driving.
