Highland woman arrested for DWI with children in car

A DWAI arrest in the state of New York can result in punitive actions before the trial even begins. When there are children in the car, child protective services may become involved, evaluating the children's living circumstances to determine if they should remain in their present environments. Driving while impaired with children under the age of 16 in the car raises the seriousness of the offense, with the driver facing an automatic felony charge under the state's Leandra's Law, making it even more important for the driver to prepare a strong DWI defense.

Field sobriety tests same for drugs and alcohol

When determining your motor skills and ability to drive during a traffic stop, New York police use the same field sobriety tests, whether they believe you have been drinking alcohol or are under the influence of other drugs. If police believe you are under the influence of prescription drugs or narcotics they can still conduct a battery of tests to determine your ability to drive and arrest you for Driving While Ability Impaired or DWAI.
