In November of 2006, the New York State legislature enacted a new category of DWI offense under the Vehicle & Traffic Law Section 1192 (2-a) Aggravated DWI, for those drivers with a BAC of 0.18% or above. Although a misdemeanor, Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated is a more serious offense than a typical DWI offense. In fact, not only are the enhanced punishments more serious, but prosecutors are limited in their ability to offer you the non-criminal infraction of driving while ability impaired.
