What to know about the IRS Program
The Immediate Roadside Suspension Program is a measure designed to protect the safety of all road users. It involves the suspension or disqualification of the driver’s operator’s License. In other words, the driver’s privilege to legally operate a motor vehicle will be immediately revoked. This action is taken due to the grave risks associated with impaired driving, which poses significant dangers to the driver themselves, passengers, and other road users.
However, the consequences do not stop at the suspension or disqualification of the driver’s License. The legislation also mandates that the driver’s vehicle be subjected to immediate seizure. This means that the vehicle used by the driver, who has been found to be driving with a BAC over the legal limit, will be impounded by the authorities. This additional step aims to deter individuals from engaging in impaired driving by imposing tangible and immediate consequences.
