Four drivers who were challenging the provincial .08 driving law will not be getting their licenses back while they wait for a constitutional challenge to be heard.

The new law came into effect on July 1st and sees vehicles impounded for three days and licenses suspended until the cases are resolved.

In his decision, the judge said he couldn’t allow a stay application because it could endanger the public but he did sympathize with the applicants who said the inability to drive has affected their life and ability to work.

The applicant’s constitutional challenge will be heard later this year, according to The Calgary Sun.
