A lower BAC limit for DWI in New York is a real possibility

According to a recent report, New York lawmakers considered seriously whether they should lower the legal limit in this state to .05 blood alcohol content, or .05 BAC. Currently, the legal limit is .08, and a person driving with this much alcohol in their system, or more, runs the risk of facing the serious drunk driving charges.

0.18 BAC is a key threshold in New York DWI law

One thing that makes the already serious situation of facing DWI charges here in New York even more high-stakes is if a person is accused of driving with a BAC of 0.18 or more. That’s because, under state drunk driving law, driving with a BAC at or above this threshold isn’t a standard DWI offense, but is instead aggravated DWI.
