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.

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

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.

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.

Controversial loophole in New York DUI law finally closed

In you are convicted of a DUI-related offense in the state of New York, you will face some rather harsh penalties concerning your driving privileges. For example, a conviction on a first offense DUI will result in your driver's license being suspended for a minimum of six months.

MLB appearing more likely to implement official alcohol policy

The green grass of the field. The crack of the bat. The roar of the crowd. The sound of police sirens? After yet another DUI-related arrest of a professional baseball player last week, both fans and safety groups are wondering if Major League Baseball (MLB) is doing enough to combat alcohol abuse among players and personnel.

Chris Simms found not guilty of DWI

Professional football player, Chris Simms, was arrested in New York City last July on DWI charges. The arrest took place in the early morning after Simms was stopped at a sobriety checkpoint in the West Village. The 30-year-old football player was driving a 2009 Mercedes Benz when he was arbitrarily stopped.

Bronx D.A.'s office facing allegations of favorable treatment regarding prosecutor's DUI arrest

Last week, a blog post discussed how several police precincts in the Bronx were currently at the center of a large-scale investigation into allegations of ticket-fixing. Now, another prominent law enforcement agency in the Bronx - the district attorney's office - is under the spotlight for perhaps providing favorable treatment to a fellow prosecutor who was arrested for DUI.
