Under this program, provincial law permits the immediate suspension of a driver's licence for 90 days upon evidence gathered by a police officer that the driver (a) was shown to have a concentration of alcohol in excess of 80 milligrams per 100 millilitres of blood or (b) the driver failed or refused to provide a breath or blood sample.
This category includes both drivers reported as ability impaired by alcohol and drivers reported as "had been drinking".

Total litres sold were converted to kilometers travelled based on a conversion factor of 22.0 kilometres per gallon. Starting in 2000, vehicle kilometres travelled are based on estimates provided by Statistics Canada and Transport Canada.
