Drunk Driving DUI Accidents in NY
In 2011, 9,878 people died in drunk driving crashes in the United States, one death every 53 minutes; and a person is injured in a drunk driving crash every 90 seconds. The statistics are clear that driving drunk endangers everyone on the road and yet the efforts of law enforcement have failed to curb this reckless behavior.
In New York, DUI (Driving Under the Influence) requires a blood alcohol content of less than .08% to convict and punishment includes suspension of driver’s license, fines, possible enrollment in the New York Drinking Driving Program, and possible jail time for first time offenders. People rarely make the conscious decision to drive drunk but once they make the decision to have one drink their decision making ability is altered.
