Q. Can You Get a DWI on a Boat?

A.  One of the great things about living in western New York is that there are so many great places you can go in a boat. If you are out on your boat, however, it is important to realize that the crime of BWI – boating while intoxicated – does exist, and it carries a lot of the same penalties as DWI. That means it's important to hire an attorney if you are ever charged with BWI. While your driver's license will not be suspended, if you have prior DWIs, the court will consider that when determining the sentence you will receive in your BWI case. Also, if you've had a BWI conviction and are later charged with DWI, that BWI conviction will be used in determining your sentence for that DWI.


Q. What are the Consequences of Driving with a Suspended License?

A. Aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle is a criminal offense in the state of New York, and it does not matter whether your license is suspended for a DWI, failure to pay traffic citations, or failure to appear in court. If your license has been suspended, you'll be charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, but an attorney can help you resolve that case in a number of ways. The first and most important of those is available to you if you can obtain a valid driver's license
