New York Is Set for Strict Stand on D.W.I. Cases- Will California Follow?

Posted by Debra White | Nov 17, 2009 | 0 Comments

It is a fact that California driving under the influence (DUI or DWI) laws and penalties are becoming stricter every year. A DUI offender can be now be charged with a felony if he or she has received multiple DUI convictions in the 10 years prior to arrest, and even a first-time offender can face a felony conviction for DUI if he or she was involved in an accident while driving drunk if someone is injured. In Arizona, and more recently, New York, a new law was passed making it a felony to drive while intoxicated if there is a child in the car. Will California follow in the stead of other states imposing even harsher penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI or DWI) when there is a child in the car?
