FREQUENTLY ASKED DWI QUESTIONS:
Q. What is Aggravated DWI?
A. A person whose breath reading is .18 or higher will be charged with aggravated DWI. While it is still a misdemeanor, the penalties for this crime are higher than they would be if they had been charged with a regular DWI. For example, the fine will be at least $1,000, and may range all the way up to $2,500, in addition to certain surcharges that are very expensive. Also, the offender's license will be suspended/revoked for a period of one year, and other consequences may include a period of probation lasting up to three years as well as up to one year in jail. Judges are more likely to impose a jail sentence for an aggravated DWI than in cases of regular DWI.
FREQUENTLY ASKED TRAFFIC TICKET QUESTIONS:
Q. What are the Penalties for a Cell Phone Violation?
A. Drivers in New York State face some of the country's strictest penalties with regard to talking on a cell phone or utilizing a mobile device for texting and/or getting directions. Conviction of either one of those charges is a five-point offense – the same number of points faced by an individual who passes a school bus or is convicted of reckless driving. As a matter of perspective, remember accumulating only 11 points within 18 months will cause your driver's license to be suspended.
