Cuomo: New law toughens against drunk driving

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed a new law that keeps more drunken drivers off roads in New York.

The new law will make it a felony to drive intoxicated on a conditional license.

Drivers who lose their license for drunk driving could be issued a conditional license, limited to important trips such as work, school and medical appointments.

A motorist driving drunk on a revoked license is a felony but doing it on a conditional license is only a traffic violation.
