Under some new state regulations, repeat drunk drivers will not be able to get their licenses back.
Governor Andrew Cuomo says the Department of Motor Vehicles will now refuse to reinstate the license of anyone convicted of five or more DWI offenses.
Prior to now, offenders only had to complete a seven-week education program to regain their privileges.
The DMV avoided legislative approval by enacting its emergency rule-making privileges to establish the new rule.
The changes will affect an estimated 20,000 drivers this year.
