Typo in DUI Law

Typo found in N.Y. drunk driving law

Nov 5, 2006

Drinking a shot of beer in New York could get you arrested for drunken
driving, thanks to a typo in a New York law passed this year.

Lawmakers approved a bill that sets the standard for driving while
intoxicated at 0.18 grams of alcohol in a person’s blood. But a person’s
body can produce that much alcohol naturally, according to Rochester DWI
lawyer Ed Fiandach.

Instead of using grams, the law should have used blood alcohol content
as a measure.
