What is Impaired Driving?

There are many words we use to describe impaired driving or operating charges. Drunk driving and DWI are the common terms, in addition to DUI and DWAI. Impairment can be due to lack of sleep or to prescription drugs – not just alcohol or illegal drugs! The accused vehicle operator may face the immediate loss of driving privileges and licenses, vehicle impoundment, fines, rehabilitation and re-education classes, local jail or prison time, ignition interlock devices, and more.

In New York, people whose breathalyzer reading is over 0.08% or who have refused to take a breath or blood test, can have their license automatically suspended even before any trial is held to determine guilt or innocence. For commercial drivers, different laws and penalties apply.

After your arrest for drunk driving (DWI), work on your defense must begin right away.

You must hire an attorney who will begin to take the necessary steps involved:

  • Retrieve all police paperwork in connection with the arrest
  • Prepare evidence to convince a court to grant you a temporary (hardship) license
  • Contact the police department to begin proceedings to recover your seized vehicle
  • Investigate the accuracy of the breath or blood tests that may have been administered
