ALBANY, N.Y. (WENY) -- Across New York State, Police investigating a serious car crash will soon have more responsibilities.
Governor Cuomo signed a new bill this week requiring drivers to take a field sobriety test if there are "reasonable grounds" to suspect the driver violated state traffic law.
If the driver does not comply, the DMV could suspend their license.
Cuomo wrote in his approval message: "Impaired drivers who cause serious accidents must be held accountable for their actions."
The law will take effect in thirty days.
