New Jersey’s Drunk Driving Laws
A person is charged with a DWI/DUI if it is determined that he or she was operating a vehicle while having a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher. For people under the age of 21, a 0.01% BAC or higher will lead to a DWI/DUI charge, while a CDL driver is charged with a DWI/DUI in NJ if his or her BAC is 0.04% or higher. Penalties for your DWI/DUI offense will vary based on how high your BAC was and how many previous drunk driving offenses you’ve been convicted of.
Potential Penalties You Could Be Facing:
