(Calgary, NAP-IRS). PSP was issued immediate roadside sanctions by way of a notice of administrative penalty. Like so many cases where a person is charged or sanctioned by law enforcement (either through the criminal law or a regulatory scheme), the investigating agency stumbles into a situation, only to observe a partial event without context. In this case, though PSP was not initially in care or control of the vehicle -- and had not intention to do so -- circumstances unfolded that caused her to be behind the wheel. Specifically, PSP's partner slid on ice and the vehicle got lodged in a snow bank. To get the vehicle dislodged, PSP's partner was the stronger person and so he pushed while PSP steered the vehicle out of the snowbank. Unfortunately, just as the pair got unstuck and were about to change positions, police rolled up and investigated PSP for impaired driving. PSP had her notice of administrative penalty cancelled on grounds relating to the collection of the breath samples. Notwithstanding the cancellation, the SafeRoads IRS framework still exacted a punishment; for PSP's vehicle was impounded and incurred impound fees for 30 days. Issued immediate roadside sanctions?
