Facts About New Jersey’s Strict DUI/DWI Laws

New Jersey does not make any distinction between DUI and DWI (driving while intoxicated). You can also be charged even if consuming prescribed drugs for driving under the influence of drugs. New Jersey state law also uses implied consent, meaning that anyone driving a motor vehicle has already given consent to take a chemical test to determine their blood alcohol content. Individual facing allegations of DUI or driving under the influence of alcohol and may face even more serious charges if they refuse to take a breathalyzer test.

Urine and Blood Evidence to Prove DUI

New Jersey DUI AttorneyNew Jersey DUI Attorney

In most DUI cases, blood alcohol content is determined using a breath test. But sometimes, other chemical testing is conducted using urine testing or a blood test. While you cannot refuse to take a breath test in New Jersey, unlike other states you can refuse to take a blood test or urine test unless the law enforcement officer has a warrant.

Examining All Aspects Of A DWI Case

Many times, New Jersey DUI offenses are defended based on a violation of your constitutional rights. The police cannot just stop anyone for a traffic violation, and there must be significant proof that you are driving drunk. Mere suspicion and guesses are not enough to make an arrest. The police can only arrest you based on a significant amount of evidence of intoxication. Further, they are only permitted to arrest you if they have “probable cause.”

Many of these types of DWI cases and other driving offenses are successfully defended by hearings challenging the validity of the arrest. My years of experience in New Jersey criminal law and traffic defense make me eminently qualified to handle any type of DUI case in municipal courts throughout New Jersey.

Penalties For Conviction Of A DUI Crime

At The Law Office of Jill R. Cohen, I understand that being charged with drunk driving in New Jersey can be scary because the penalties are often severe. For example, all DUI/DWI convictions are permanently recorded at the New Jersey Department of Motor Vehicles, which imposes a mandatory insurance surcharge (between $3,000 and $5,000) on drivers with drunk driving convictions in New Jersey. The amount you have to pay for a surcharge will depend on how many prior DUI or DWI convictions you have had.

In addition to monetary fines and penalties, a driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) conviction could result in the loss of your driver’s license, insurance surcharges, motor vehicle points, suspension of registration and even incarceration. Further still, if your job requires any type of driving, you may find yourself unemployed after being convicted of drunk driving since you can no longer drive to work.
