The book is a clearly-written review of all aspects of an impaired driving investigation, from where to conduct patrols and the initial stop to giving evidence in court. The author has structured the book as a series of concise responses to particular questions that arise in impaired driving investigations. The questions are very specific, for example, "What if the driver interrupts me while I am reading section 10(b)?" or, "When do I have to wait 15 minutes before administering the ASD device?" The Table of Contents makes it easy to find the answer to any specific question. At over 360 pages, the author has covered every issue I could imagine.
Mr. Koturbash's book is intended for a law enforcement audience, but lawyers will benefit from learning the investigator's perspective. Prosecutor's in particular will find valuable information in the book's final chapters, which focus on the conduct of the impaired driving trial. Defence counsel will improve their knowledge of the way investigations should be conducted, and gain some insight into the thought processes of the police and prosecutors they are dealing with.
I have been acting for drivers prosecuted by Mr. Koturbsah for many years. He knows what he is writing about. I recommend this book to any one involved in impaired driving law in Canada.
