State DMV Proposing Regulatory Changes To Aid in Punishing Persistently Risky Drivers


The State Department of Motor Vehicles has proposed changes to DMV regulations to aid their ability to remove drivers who engage in risky behavior from New York roadways and make it more difficult for persistent offenders to get their driving privileges back.

The proposed changes will take steps such as increasing the number of points associated with dangerous driving, and decreasing the threshold at which dangerous drivers are disqualified from holding a license. Other steps include lowering the bar for permanent license forfeiture for reckless drivers who continue to drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

All proposed changes can be reviewed in the New York State Register and will be open for comment for 60 days.
