Albany Co. ranks 11th in state for DWI convictions

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. – Albany County has been ranked 11th in New York State for conviction rankings for Driving While Intoxicated crimes. 

The New York State Stop-DWI compiles these rankings annually based on the Department of Motor Vehicles Data Services. In 2005, Albany County was ranked 61 out of 62 counties before ranking 11 in 2013

The Office of the District Attorney says it will continue to fine-tune policy and work with law enforcement to make local streets the safest in New York State.

“It is a reality that every day citizens take their lives into their own hands when they get behind the wheel of a vehicle,” commented District Attorney David Soares. “Keeping families safe from irresponsible and impaired drivers is a priority for my office, and we will continue to aggressively combat this problem until we reach #1.”
