DUI Drug Penalties in New York
If you are pulled over by law enforcement and it is believed that you are under the influence of any controlled substance, a blood or urine test will be taken to determine what substance was in your system. If it returns with a positive for any drug that could affect the ability to drive, the consequences can be significant, including up to $2,000 in fines, and license revocation. There are hidden costs, including court fees and increased car insurance rates that can make your life extremely difficult – once you have your license reinstated, which could be many months or a year in the future. The penalties are increased exponentially if you have a prior DUI conviction on record.
