New York State legislators have drafted a new law that would really make people think even more about having a few drinks and then getting behind the wheel.

This new draft law if adopted would be a "3 strikes law" in nature. Basically if anyone gets 3 DWI's or 3 driving under the influence charges where an accident was involved they will lose their licenses forever.

What does this mean. It means, if you can't drive then you can't work. With today's society and emphasis on safety I totally expect this law to pass. Bottom line is this, "don't drink and drive".  After reading the article I was looking to see if this law would start counting for offenses from the date it is signed into effect, or if people who already have DWI or DUI would already have "strikes against them." I did not see any answer to this question. Here is the story from WNYT.
