If a driver submits to the breath test when arrested for DWI, and is later convicted of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) or Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI), in Buffalo NY, the driver is eligible for a 20 day Order. The Twenty (20) Day Order authorizes twenty days of full driving privileges following a conviction for DWI or DWAI to determine whether a driver is eligible for enrollment in the Drinker Driver Program (DDP). Enrollment in the DDP will enable the driver to obtain a Conditional License during the period of revocation or suspension that stems from the conviction. If you have been convicted of DWI (or other DWI related crime), the ignition interlock device will need to be installed before sentencing or the 20 day order will be useless as it is needed upon sentencing.
