Changes to impaired driving laws in Saskatchewan are being called a good first step by grieving families of people killed by drunk drivers. The changes include a three-day vehicle seizure for drivers who are charged for the first time with having a blood alcohol content over .04. Allan Kerpan, whose 25-year-old daughter was killed by a drunk driver, says he thinks the embarrassment of losing a vehicle might help deter impaired drivers. (The proposed new law also extends a zero tolerance policy to all drivers under the age of 21. The changes will take effect January 1st, if approved by the legislature.)
