MALLIOTAKIS CITES RECENT DWI CONVICTION IN SUPPORT OF BILL TO STRENGTHEN DRUNK-DRIVING PENALTIES

Golden, Malliotakis legislation would revoke license plates of drunk drivers caught driving while unlicensed

 

Following today’s Staten Island Advance story regarding the DWI conviction of Charles Pelicone, Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R,C-East Shore/Bay Ridge) is renewing her plea for the New York State Assembly to pass new drunk driving laws (A. 6878) in response to a rash of recent cases across the state.

 

The proposal takes a new approach to penalizing repeat drunk drivers, who account for between one-third and on-half of all DWI arrests in the state every year. The Senate bill, (S. 4036) sponsored by Senator Martin Golden (R,C,I-Brooklyn), was passed by the State Senate on June 14, 2011.

STATEMENT BY SENATE MAJORITY LEADER DEAN SKELOS

Today’s report by Comptroller DiNapoli, showing that tax collections for the first quarter of the State’s Fiscal Year have far outpaced recent estimates, is encouraging, and we must continue to monitor this situation over the next six months. 

If this positive trend continues, the Governor and State Legislature should focus on cutting taxes so businesses across the state can use the resulting savings to create new jobs, grow their companies and invest in New York. 

This year’s state budget, a responsible spending plan that eliminated a $10 billion deficit without raising taxes, was widely recognized as the first step in showing job-creators that New York was once again open for business.

New Law Strengthens Ban on Texting While Driving

New legislation is now in effect in New York State that strengthens the enforcement against drivers who use handheld electronic to text while driving. The legislation was sponsored by Senator Carl Marcellino, supported by Senator Jack M. Martins and signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo.

The new law makes texting while driving a primary traffic offense, giving law enforcement the power to stop drivers solely for engaging in this activity.  

Before this law, it was illegal for drivers to use handheld electronic devices while their vehicle was in motion, but it was a secondary traffic offense -- meaning a driver had to be stopped for another violation in order to receive a ticket.
