What Is Considered Driving While Intoxicated in New York?

New York State defines driving while intoxicated (DWI) as operating a motor vehicle while impaired by alcohol, drugs, or a combination of the two. You can be charged with DWI even if you are not driving a vehicle at the time of the offense. You can be charged with DWI if you are found in control of a vehicle while intoxicated.

The specific circumstances of your case will determine the specific charges you face.

The most common charges for DWI are:

  • First-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle in the third degree, a Class E felony
  • Third-degree unlicensed operation of a vehicle, a Class A misdemeanor
  • Second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle, a Class A misdemeanor
  • First-degree reckless endangerment, a Class D felony
  • Second-degree reckless endangerment, a Class A misdemeanor

You can also face a charge of driving while ability impaired (DWAI). This is a less serious offense than DWI, but it is still a misdemeanor. You can be charged with DWAI if you are operating a vehicle while your ability to do so is impaired by drugs, alcohol, or a combination of the two. You can also be charged with DWAI if you are in control of a vehicle while your ability to do so is impaired.

What Are the Penalties for Multiple DUIs?

The penalties for multiple DUIs will depend on the number of convictions you have and the circumstances of those convictions. If you have one conviction for DWI, the penalties will be less than if you have multiple convictions.

The penalties for multiple convictions for DWI are:

  • Second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle, a Class D felony
  • First-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle, a Class C felony
  • Second-degree reckless endangerment, a Class D felony
  • First-degree reckless endangerment, a Class C felony

The penalties for multiple convictions for DWAI will be less severe than those for multiple convictions for DWI. The penalties for multiple convictions for DWAI are:

  • First-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle, a Class E felony
  • Third-degree unlicensed operation of a vehicle, a Class A misdemeanor
  • Second-degree reckless endangerment, a Class A misdemeanor

You can also face a charge of driving while ability impaired (DWAI). This is a less serious offense than DWI, but it is still a misdemeanor. You can be charged with DWAI if you are operating a vehicle while your ability to do so is impaired by drugs, alcohol, or a combination of the two. You can also be charged with DWAI if you are in control of a vehicle while your ability to do so is impaired.
