In all states, including New York, law enforcement officials use different methods to apprehend drivers who could be driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence of drugs. Drivers should note that they can be pulled over if officers see any probable cause or sign of intoxication.

Police officer suspected of drunken driving

Drunk driving is strictly prohibited in the United States. Each state has its own unique set of penalties that are imposed on those arrested for drunk driving. New York has some of the toughest drunk driving laws in the country. Readers should note that anyone, regardless of social status or government affiliation can be arrested for DUI, which is the case of an NYPD officer who was recently charged with DUI after being involved in a minor accident.

New York does not tolerate drunk driving on its streets. And despite the fact that drunk driving is considered a serious offense and carries significant penalties, the state still has its fair share of alcohol-related incidents.
