DWI Laws in New York
In the state of New York, DWI refers to operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 or higher. For commercial drivers, however, DWI classification begins with a BAC of 0.04. Aggravated DWI occurs when the driver’s BAC reaches 0.18 or higher. Drivers with a BAC of under 0.08 can still be charged; Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI) charges involve a BAC of between 0.05 and 0.07. New York is a zero tolerance state; minors under the age of 21 can be charged if they drive with a BAC of 0.02 or higher.
DWI penalties vary based on the age of the driver and whether his or her crime is deemed a DWI, aggravated DWI, or DWAI. Additionally, criminal history plays a role in determining the appropriate penalty. License suspension or revocation may range between 90 days and over a year. Fines between $300 and $1,000 are common, with aggravated charges sometimes resulting in $10,000 in fines.
