Lawmakers weigh in
For tomorrow, I wrote about some ideas for reforms from some lawmakers, among them Assemblyman Mike Spano of Yonkers.
Spano would make some cases of drunk-driving fatalities murder.
In the meantime, there’s this story from Long Island — another parent allegedly driving drunk with a child in the car.
From the Associated Press:
ROOSEVELT, N.Y. (AP) — State police say a Long Island driver had his 4-month-old son in his SUV when he was arrested with a blood-alcohol level that was almost twice the legal limit.
Police say they spotted the suspect driving unsafely on the Southern State Parkway in Roosevelt.
They said a breath sample showed a 0.15 blood alcohol level.
The Elmhurst, Queens, resident was charged with driving while intoxicated and child endangerment.
