New York – Bill Gives 3-Strikes-You’re-Out Treatment To DWI


    New York – A bill in New York would apply the three-strike rule to drunken drivers by permanently ending their driving privileges.

    The bill would terminate licenses forever for a driver who is convicted three times for driving while intoxicated or driving while under the influence or if the driver is at fault in three accidents where there are injuries.

    Republican Assemblyman James Tedisco (ted-IS-ko) and Senator Hugh Farley say the bill aims to stop what they call serial drunken driving.

    Currently, state law doesn’t permanently terminate driving privileges even after chronic drunken driving.

    The New York legislators from the Schenectady area plan to announce their bill on Friday.
