Among all the states in the U.S., New York ranks as one of the toughest when it comes to the prosecution of DWI cases. Though the legal blood alcohol content (BAC) limit across the country is 0.08%, New York also recognizes a second category of driving impairment known as driving while ability impaired (DWAI). This means the driver has a BAC between 0.05% and 0.07%.
Furthermore, in New York driving with a BAC of 0.17% or over is considered Aggravated DWI and is a very serious offense. If you have been accused of driving while intoxicated it is vital to your defense to contact Goldberger & Dubin, P.C. today.
