New York DWI Attorney Discusses Underage Drunk Driving
In New York, if you are charged with an underage drunk driving, which means that you are under the age of 21, there is a misnomer. It’s called a zero tolerance, but it’s really a .01. If you blow a .01 to a .07, you’ll be charged with an underage DWI. What very few people know is that this case should actually be prosecuted at the Department of Motor Vehicles. As an experienced New York DWI Attorney I’ve had cases where I’ve had an underage driver who was charged with a DWI or underage drunk driving and was prosecuted in the criminal court. But I’ve had cases transferred to the Department of Motor Vehicles, so the end result (even in a conviction) is that case won’t count in the future as a DWI.
