Ms. M was driving home after putting in a long shift at the bar when she was pulled over by police for a routine traffic check. They claimed they smelled alcohol in the car and ordered that she blow into an approved screening device. Despite numerous efforts on her part, she was unable to successfully register a proper breath sample and she was charged accordingly with both failure to comply with a demand and impaired driving. After meeting with the client and listening to her side of the story, Zalman Haouzi learned that she had recently undergone facial surgery and that was why she was unable to blow into the device properly. After providing the Crown with the medical reports and sitting down with them to explain the situation, Zalman Haouzi successfully articulated that Ms. M hadn’t refused to comply with the breath demand but rather, was physically unable to comply with it at no fault of her own. The charges were dropped accordingly.
