Albany, NY (WIBX) - DMV officials in New York State are announcing tougher regulations for people convicted of multiple drunk or drugged-driving offenses.

Under new rules anyone who has five or more alcohol or drug-related driving convictions during their lifetime may not have a driver's license reinstated.  New applications will be denied.

Those convicted of fewer offenses may also be required to have interlock devices on their cars for longer periods of time.
