NY Toughens Law Against Drunken Driving
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed a new law meant to keep more drunken drivers off New York roads.
The new law makes it a felony to drive drunk on a conditional license.
Motorists who lose their license for drunken driving may be issued a conditional license, limited to essential trips like work, school and medical appointments.
While driving drunk on a revoked license was already a felony, doing it on a conditional license has been only a traffic infraction.
