DMV Will Issue New Drunk Driving Regulations
At the Governor's direction, the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will issue new regulations that will give New York among the toughest protections in the nation against drivers who persistently drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Cuomo is saying 'enough is enough' to those who have chronically abused their driving privileges and threatened the safety of other drivers, passengers and pedestrians. Under current law, drivers who are convicted of multiple alcohol or drug related driving offenses cannot permanently lose their licenses. The only time a driver really faces losing a license permanently is when he or she has two alcohol or drug related convictions occur from separate crashes involving a physical injury.
