There are several ways to be charged for drunk driving in the state of New York. The basic charge is driving while intoxicated (DWI). Drivers who have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher or whos ability to drive is visibly impaired are charged with a DWI. A driving while ability is impaired (DWAI) is charged when the driver has a BAC of .05 to .07, or if there is evidence of impairment. A DWAI/Drugs charge means that the drivers ability to operate a vehicle is impaired by a substance other than alcohol. That substance can be anything that impairs the driver, from an illegal drug to a prescription drug. A driver can also be charged if they refuse the chemical test that determines BAC. If the driver refuses, their license may be revoked, and there is a $350 civil penalty fine. New York also has a zero tolerance law, so any driver under the age of 21 will be charged with a DWI if their BAC is .02 or higher.

If the driver is just receiving their first New York DWI offense, then they will face up to 1 year in jail. They will be fined a minimum of $500 to $1,000. Their license will also be suspended for at least 6 months, and they will have to pay a reinstatement surcharge at the end of that period. Finally, New York courts sentence offending drivers to attend mandatory alcohol screenings and evaluations.
