If you get a DUI in New York, what are the penalties?

In our last post, we talked about the checkpoints associated with drunk driving and sobriety that can pop up around New York. In that post, we talked about how the penalties that are placed on someone convicted of a DUI are very serious and can affect the individual in many ways. But, specifically, what are the penalties that await a person convicted of a DUI?

The legality of DUI checkpoints and how they usually work

Did you know that in the state of New York, sobriety checkpoints -- sometimes called "DUI checkpoints" -- are legal? That may not seem surprising, until you consider that not every state allows sobriety checkpoints, even though a U.S. Supreme Court ruling stated that these checkpoints are constitutional. They usually happen on a weekly basis and they can catch many people who are driving under the influence.

Uber, MADD pair up for drunk driving prevention over July 4th

As is tradition every Fourth of July, the news turns its focus on one of the more dangerous days to be out on the road of the year. According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), in 2012 roughly half of all fatal accidents on July 4th involved a drunk driver. So they are trying to do something about it this year by partnering with the mobile ride service Uber to reduce the number of drunk drivers out on the road.
