Man charged after hitting vehicle that failed to yield

For many people, meeting up with friends or family for a dinner out usually includes a drink or two.

Alcohol affects everyone differently. Even though the state of New York considers 0.08 to be legally intoxicated, it may not represent the same level of drunkenness for everyone.
