New Interlock Requirement For New York Driving While Intoxicated Convictions By Michael Joseph on March 11, 2011

As a New York City and Westchester DWI lawyer, we regularly handle DWI cases in all of the Westchester towns including White Plains, Yonkers, Harrison, Port Chester, Mount Vernon and New Rochelle.

This year New York added a new requirement for convictions for DWI. Any conviction for a DWI now requires that the person convicted install an interlock device in their car. If a person convicted of a DWI fails to install an interlock device, they are now guilty of an additional crime.

This new requirement does not apply to people convicted of driving while their ability to drive is impaired. New York criminal defense lawyers must advise their clients of this new requirement when discussing plea bargains.
