Driving While Ability Impaired by Drugs in NYC

Your Future Depends on Dedicated Legal Advocacy

Handcuffed for driving while ability impaired by drugs arrest.

While law enforcement can quickly assess a driver's blood alcohol content (BAC) by administering numerous tests, determining the amount of drugs in someone's system is much more difficult. Because of the complexity of driving while ability impaired (DWAI) by drugs charges, you need a team that is well-equipped to handle them successfully.

The penalties for a DWAI by drugs offense are similar to those for DUI charges. First time convicted offenders can face the following:

  • License suspension
  • Fines of up to $1,000
  • Up to one year in jail

Subsequent convictions only become more serious and can even be punished with up to four years behind bars. There is no doubt that such penalties can take a serious toll on your future.
