What is IRP Law?
Under the British Columbia Decriminalized DUI Laws, the Immediate Roadside Prohibition (IRP) is an Administrative Driving prohibition or suspension within the Motor Vehicle Act. Upon receiving the Notice of Prohibition, someone has only 7 days to file an Application for Review form with ICBC Driver Services. After 7 days, your right to dispute is gone forever.
We see this short time limit as being intentionally imposed by the government in order to make the dispute process difficult for drivers. As a team of experienced criminal defense and administrative lawyers, we believe these prohibitions, as well as the time limits around them for dispute, are unfair and flawed. As a result of these rules, police error and unreliability of devices, we maintain that many innocent drivers are unjustly issued roadside suspensions.
Most IRP defenses are not obvious, and many drivers mistakenly believe their case is hopeless so they do not file an application for review. If you’ve been suspended, contact us immediately so we can discuss your options. You will then be equipped to make an informed decision about whether or not to proceed with an application for review.
