I'd think they will be coming back for the money once the police put charges down.

And for good measure I hope the police throws the book at the OP for drink driving.

we dont need a potential Silviu Ionescu incident again.

You mean traffic offense will be different base on who you are?

Drunk driving is a bit more serious than a "traffic offense", especially if it involved an accident.

The penalty for the offense will be the same across the board. But if you're on an EP/WP, you should assume you'll lose your permit or it won't be renewed. As a PR, you should assume your REP will not be renewed.
