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.
