Listed below are some of the important laws related to a DWI or DUI in New York that you need to understand and be aware of:

  • Chemical Test – For those who are arrested for a DUI or DWI within New York City, the police officer might ask you to take a chemical test for them to determine what your blood alcohol content is. If you refuse to take this test, your license will be suspended at your court arraignment for at least one year. A second-time offender refusing to take the test will end up with their license being suspended for at least 18 months.
  • Zero Tolerance Law – An individual who is under 21 years of age that is arrested for drunk driving will need to get DWI lawyers working on their side as quickly as possible. Under this law, it is illegal for a minor to consume alcohol before reaching the designated age. For those who have a blood alcohol content between .02 and .07 percent, your license could end up suspended for up to six months.
  • Ignition Interlock Program – Anyone who is convicted or a felony or misdemeanor DWI charge is required to have an ignition interlock device put into their vehicle.
