Anyone who has received a driving suspension in Port Moody in the last year after failing a roadside breath test may not have been over the legal limit, according to a lawyer who handles drunk driving cases.
Paul Doroshenko told The Tri-City News the Port Moody Police Department has been improperly calibrating its screening devices, which could mean some people have received suspensions unfairly.
“People in Port Moody need to know that all year long, the officer who has been doing this has been doing it incorrectly,” Doroshenko said. “The results are not reliable.”
In response to Doroshenko’s claims, Port Moody Police Department has asked the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner to order an investigation, which would be conducted by an outside agency.
