Driving While Impaired and Driving While Under the Influence

Drunk driving - also known as driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) - is one of the most serious traffic offenses in New Jersey. In addition to possible jail time, a conviction for drunk driving may impact your insurance rates, employment, and reputation. 

Under N.J.S. 39:4-50

A driver found with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or greater can be charged with DWI/DUI. The penalty depends on a variety of factors,  These factors include whether it is a first or repeat offense, past traffic convictions, how far the BAC exceeds the legal limit, and circumstances the led to that charge such as an accident or a traffic stop. 


If you are arrested for drunk driving, it is important to have a highly skilled and experienced New Jersey DUI lawyer by your side.
