SYRACUSE (WBNG) -- The Tully Rinckey law firm says holiday travelers should expect an increase in police traffic patrol cars during New Year’s weekend. 

The Tully Rinckey law firm says holiday travelers should expect an increase in police traffic patrol cars during New Year’s weekend. 

The firm says refusing to take a breathalyzer test could result in an administrative hearing and possibly getting your license suspended for up to six months with a fine of $500. 

Also understand Leandra’s Law, which is if someone is driving intoxicated with a child under 16 in the backseat. 

Criminal Defense Attorney Tom Murphy says under Leandra’s law a driver can be charged with a felony. 

“It’s bad enough to be intoxicated to start with but then to have a minor, less than 16, in the car with them is even more responsibility,” Murphy said. 

Murphy says for anyone going out this weekend to be extra careful if you are planning on going out this weekend.
