Tougher DUI Laws

New Law May Increase Drunk Driving Program Enrollment


(WSYR-TV) – The Onondaga County Prevention Network expects to see a
25% spike in its drinking and driving prevention program because of new
legislation that toughens New York’s drunk driving laws.

The law, signed by Governor Pataki, creates a new crime called
aggravated driving while intoxicated.

It basically means you’ll face higher fines and a longer license
revocation if you’re caught drinking and driving.

The bill has been tied up in Albany for a few years, local councilors
say it’ll help cut down on drunk driving accidents.
