President of New York Public Library facing DWI charges

Most problems concerning the New York Public Library likely have to do with funding, overdue fines, loud patrons or perhaps even stolen books. However, the revered institution is currently dealing with a bona fide scandal after its head official was arrested for DUI last weekend.

Proposed New York legislation envisions alcohol anklets

Ignition interlock devices have been used to deter individuals convicted of drunk driving in New York from once again getting behind the wheel. Currently, there are more than 200,000 ignition interlock systems installed on cars in the United States. The goal of these devices is to prevent drinking and driving and reduce the number of serious car accidents caused by drunk drivers.

CDC: New York has lowest drunk driving rate in the nation

In recent news, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released the results of a comprehensive - and very interesting - survey concerning the trends/patterns of driving under the influence (DUI). In fact, the survey even determined which U.S. states had the highest and lowest rates of drunk driving. Where did New York rank on the list?

Report shows low percentage of NYC motorists installing court-ordered breathalyzers on their cars

Last August, the state of New York enacted the final provision of Leandra's Law, a rather stringent DUI law named after an 11-year-old girl who was tragically killed in a drunk driving accident on the West Side Highway back in 2009.

Statewide DUI enforcement campaign now in effect through Labor Day

Now that summer is officially winding down, people across the state of New York will be looking to maximize their time spent outdoors before the leaves start to fall and the gray skies return. This means more time spent at BBQs, baseball/softball games, parties and outdoor restaurants/taverns with patios. However, one of the staples of all of these outdoor events is alcohol and with this abundance of alcohol comes an increased risk of motorists driving under the influence (DUI).

State Senator renews call for wrong-way, reckless driving legislation

Here in New York, there has been significant discussion over the last few weeks about the efficacy of our state's DUI laws. Much of this conversation has likely been spurred by the two-year anniversary of the horrific accident on the Taconic Parkway in which eight people were killed in a wrong-way collision, and a spate of other crashes involving wrong-way drivers.

Sidelined: NFL receiver Braylon Edwards pleads guilty to drunk driving charge

Football fans here in New York City and across the nation were undoubtedly overcome with happiness when the National Football League (NFL) and the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) announced that they had agreed to a new collective bargaining agreement earlier this week. Now that the season is officially scheduled to start, teams will be scrambling to sign free agents, including wide receiver Braylon Edwards who made headlines just last week after pleading guilty to DWI/DUI-related charges in a New York City courtroom.

Pittsburgh Steelers star receiver arrested on drunk driving charges

Most of the current press coverage concerning the National Football League (NFL) has to do with the lockout and the - increasing likely - chance that the players and owners will reach an agreement that saves the season. However, even with this dedicated lockout coverage, some NFL players are still managing to make national headlines - although perhaps not as they would have liked. For example, a star wide receiver and Super Bowl MVP was arrested for DUI this past weekend.

Apple restricts availability of iPhone apps with DUI checkpoint functions

For the last few years, users of iPhones, Blackberrys and Android-based phones have become accustomed to downloading new phone applications - or "apps" - designed to alert them to the location of speed traps, red light cameras and even DUI sobriety checkpoints not otherwise made public by the police.

Study: 'Buzzed Driving' poses increased risk of fatal accident

There is no disputing the danger posed by drivers whose blood alcohol content exceeds the legal limit of .08. They are simply more susceptible to DUI-related accidents by virtue of their seriously impaired reflexes and judgment. However, what about drivers who have consumed only a minor amount of alcohol or who are "buzzed?" While most people assume that these drivers are probably okay to get behind the wheel, a new study reveals that this might not be the case.
