Refusing a Breathalzyer in New York can cost you $500

Just because you're able to do something doesn't mean you should. Perhaps, you heard this saying when you were growing up, similar to the if-your-friends-jumped-off-a-cliff statement parents often make. There are many situations in life where you may have a right to do something, but you need to weigh the possible consequences of your choice before deciding what to do.

New York to increase traffic safety with harsher penalties

Traffic related laws are developed and enacted in order to maintain order and safety on the nation's roadways. For some drivers, one traffic violation is enough to prevent them from breaking the laws of the road again. Other drivers, however, may find themselves with multiple traffic violations. In order to cut back on repeat offenses, some states, such as New York, are creating new legislation that would create stricter consequences.

New York teen faces more than DWI charge in fatal accident case

Getting caught drunk driving by authorities can often lead to multiple criminal charges. There are times when no one is harmed by drinking and driving, but other times there can be more serious consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol. In those cases, often a DWI charge is just the tip of the iceberg. As New York and other states continue to crack down on drivers who operate vehicles while they are intoxicated, it is likely the charges and penalties will continue to be heavily enforced.

Is a class action lawsuit against N.J. red light cameras drawing closer to an end?

Thanks to the technological advancements of the last decade, it's virtually impossible to go anywhere in public without potentially being recorded by a sophisticated surveillance system or even a cell phone camera. As evidenced by the popularity of reality shows, internet news sites and viral videos, many people might not actually mind this as much as you might think. However, there is still one forum on which no one wants to be recorded under any circumstances: red light cameras.

NYPD announces dramatic change to its accident investigation policy

For many years now, one of the most contentious issues between the New York Police Department, and safety advocates, citizens and the City Council has been the adequacy of vehicle traffic laws governing accident investigations.

What are the most dangerous roads for pedestrians in the tri-state area?

The Tri-State Transportation Campaign -- a non-profit organization "dedicated to reducing car dependency in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut" -- released an eye-opening report earlier this week concerning road design, vehicle traffic law and pedestrian safety.

Are the breathalyzers used by the NYPD potentially faulty?

The legal and social ramifications of such a DUI conviction are incredibly far-reaching. This may help explain why one attorney here in New York City is being so persistent in his demand for records from the New York Police Department, records that he believes will reveal that some people slapped with DUI convictions were actually convicted using information from faulty breathalyzers.

New report ranks New York City fourth in the nation for traffic congestion

In vehicle traffic law news, the Texas A&M Transportation Institute recently released its annual report examining traffic congestion levels here in the United States, and ranking the ten cities in which motorists are most likely to find themselves sitting motionless during rush hour.

Mishandled blood sample puts DUI charge in question

Following virtually every traffic stop made by police suspicious of a driver's intoxication, one or more sobriety tests are administered. Methods including (but not limited to) a field test, breathalyzer, and blood sample exam are employed by authorities to determine one's blood-alcohol content, with results frequently comprising the lion's share of a case's relevant evidence.
