An Ontario judge has ordered a serial traffic offender, who was caught driving despite a lifetime ban, to forfeit his vehicle.
The judge also sentenced the man to 30 months in a federal penitentiary.
The driver pleaded guilty to a series of drug, driving and theft offences, including: driving while under a lifetime ban, trafficking in crack cocaine and failing to appear in court for sentencing last October.
Ontario courts were given the discretion to order the forfeiture of vehicles under legislation that came into effect February, 2008. The law is primarily aimed at repeat impaired drivers, but it covers a range of possible offenders.
