Two New York Drivers Charged with DWI in Same Car

Long Island police made a double DWI arrest when a driver and a passenger switched places as they were pulled over, according to an article in Newsday.

Research shows that individuals convicted of drunk driving for the first time have driven drunk more than 87 times before their first arrest. Alcohol ignition interlocks are proven to be an effective tool in the battle against drunk driving. Studies have shown ignition interlocks are an average of 64 percent effective in reducing repeat drunk driving offenses.

Contact your lawmakers and urge them to support ignition interlocks for all convicted drunk drivers.
