Infographic: Why Drinking and Driving in New York is Your Worst Idea Yet
There is no good place to drink and drive in the USA, but some places are harder on drunk driving than others, and New York might be toughest of all, thanks to recent legislation.
This free infographic outlines drunk driving penalties in New York. Note that in addition to the .08 blood alcohol concentration (BAC) standard for DWI, you can be cited for DWAI (Driving While Ability Impaired) with a BAC of just .05. Ignition Interlocks, sometimes called car breathalyzers, are now mandatory for all convictions in the Empire State. The devices are installed on an offender’s vehicle and prevent it from starting if the driver has been drinking.
As you can see, drunk driving in New York leaves no way out: every path leads to fines, prison, lost license, and a police record. What more can we put in there to convince you that it’s a bad idea?
