DWI Laws

DWI Laws in New Jersey

If you have been charged with DWI in Burlington County, Camden County or Gloucester County, it is very important that you become familiar with DWI laws. Drivers caught driving with a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) level of 0.08% or higher may be charged with DWI. For commercial drivers, BAC levels must not exceed 0.04%. Drivers under the age of 21 cannot have a BAC level of 0.01% or greater.

In the state of New Jersey, when an individual is given a driver’s license, their consent is implied in regard to being submitted to a chemical test at the time of a DWI arrest. Refusal to submit to field sobriety tests could lead to penalties for refusing, such as driver’s license suspension, up to $500 in fines, and the installation of an ignition interlock device. Needless to say, if you have recently been arrested for DWI, you need tough legal representation from our skilled defense team at the Law Offices of Christopher L. Baxter.
