like many of you, I have lost my "right" to legally drive for life in NY state.
I'm not sure to whom you're directing this comment, but I don't know of anyone who posts here regularly tho has lost his/her driving PRIVILEGES for life in NY.
I have 5 DWI convictions from 1992-2014 and it has literally ruined my life. I'm not here for sympathy
That's good, because career drunk drivers are deserving of contempt, not sympathy.
Does anybody know if there has been any progress by the lawyers appealing this action by Cuomo?
What "action" are you talking about? The action to strip you of your driving privileges was not taken by the governor.
Does anybody know if there is any hope for me ever legally driving again in the United States?
Unlikely. After five DWI convictions, it's pretty obvious that you don't give a rip about your own or anyone else's safety or life.
How about other countries?
There are nearly 200 countries in the world, and all of them have different laws. While it is likely that some of them would deny you a license based on your NY/U.S. driving record, it's also likely that lots of them wouldn't care.
If I have to, I will move out of this country to be able to drive.
As a multiple felon, you'll have a harder time finding countries willing to let you in than you will finding countries that will let you drive.
Rather than worrying about finding a country that will allow you to drive, how about doing something to get your alcoholism and homicidal behavior under control.
