Anti-Drunk & Impaired Driving Protections Upheld

On Tuesday the state court of appeals upheld New York’s new regulations that imposed tougher suspension periods on persistent drunken drivers.

The regulations, adopted in 2012, allow for a lifetime driver’s license suspension for someone who incurs five DWIs in a 25-year period and a 5-year suspension for someone with three or four convictions in the same span.

In a statement Governor Cuomo said his administration has zero tolerance for chronic drunk and impaired drivers whose reckless actions put themselves and others at risk.
