I was a passenger in my own vehicle when a citizen reported my car swaying in the lane. The driver turned into a McDonald's restaraunt and I took over the driver side to see the menu and order. Just then I looked in the rear view mirror and the red lights were on us. I was told to pull over to the side and me and the driver switched seats again. I was charged as the driver going all over the road and failed my field sobriety test. After reading the police reports from three separate officers, the reports have conflicting information about who was actually behind the wheel at the time of the stop.

I got my DWI knocked down to Careless Driving on the criminal side but did not win my implied consent challenge. I've heard that a DWI means that a person can't go to Canada. Does that mean a criminal DWI conviction or does that also apply to implied consent/drivers license revocations?
My understanding is that you will be able to enter Canada since your DWI was reduced to Careless Driving, even with the...
