Q: What is the legal blood alcohol content limit in New York State?
A: In New York State, the legislation has changed over the years, and it is currently .08. That is the legal limit. On the other hand, if you are over .18, that is called Aggravated Operation, and that would be a much higher charge. Depending upon your background, it could be anywhere from a misdemeanor to a felony.
