I have a dwai and a dwi in ny over a five year period. In fla i then got a dwi reduced to reckless driving.
Needless to say, i no longer drink. My problem is that a dwai here in ny is a traffic infarction and not a criminal charge. It is the same as a 0.4 breath test or any impairment. Fla dmv is using this dwai and counting it as a first offense. Can they do this? thank you

If i get a dui in New York and im from ontario and a dual citizen what happens to my ON license
Hello. I was visiting NY from Canada and he was pulled over. They gave me a ticket for refusing to take breathlyzer and I was arrested. I got a ticket for refusing the breathlyzer even though I attempted two times but failed the test due to not being able blow hard enough due to lung cancer.
