Understanding DUI/DWAI Difference

In New York, driving impairment laws extend beyond the standard DUI limit. A DWAI charge can be brought against you if your BAC is 0.05 percent or higher while driving.

It’s a common misconception that being under the legal BAC limit for a DUI means you’re safe to drive. However, impaired driving, even below the DUI limit, can still result in charges. Both charges in New York demand immediate attention.

Challenging Your NY DUI Charge

A successful defense can be built by casting doubt on key aspects of your DUI case:

  • Challenging field sobriety test results based on disabilities or unclear instructions.
  • Questioning whether the officer observed you driving.
  • Verifying if the officer had probable cause to pull you over on the roadway
  • Highlighting the subjective nature of the arresting officer’s testimony and reports.

An experienced DUI attorney can explore various defensive angles. Attempting to face DUI or DWAI charges alone can result in severe consequences. In New York, a first offense may lead to fines ranging from $500 to $1,000, potential jail time of up to a year, and a minimum six-month driver’s license revocation.
