Drunk Driving (DWI / DUI)
Driving While Intoxicated (“DWI”) and Driving Under the Influence (“DUI”) refer to the same serious crime. Drinking alcohol or taking illegal and legal drugs (illegal drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, or PCP as well as legal prescription and over-the-counter drugs); may affect your ability to operate cars, boats or industrial equipment in a safe manner.
It is against the law in every state to drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs if you cannot operate your vehicle safely.
DWI and DUI laws are strictly enforced and taken very seriously in the penal system.
If you have been charged with this type of crime, seek out the help of a skilled NY Criminal law attorney.
