The Garden State Parkway runs for 172 miles from the southern end to the northern end of the state. Due to the high volume of traffic on this roadway, it is closely monitored by law enforcement for traffic violations including DWI. DWI or DUI matters arising on the Garden State Parkway (GSP), New Jersey are taken very seriously in New Jersey.

Drunk Driving Law in New Jersey

In New Jersey, it is illegal for anyone to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or more. Additionally, anyone who permits another to operate a motor vehicle owned by him or under his control to drive while intoxicated may be convicted for DWI.

Severe Penalties for Garden State Parkway DWI Violations

The penalties for driving drunk in New Jersey are severe. A first DWI or DUI conviction can result in a loss of driving privileges for at least 3 months and up to 1 year depending on the amount of alcohol in a person’s system. In addition, the penalty includes significant fines and surcharges.

In addition, anyone under the age of 21 with a blood alcohol level of 0.01% or more, but less than 0.08% has violated New Jersey’s underage drinking and driving laws. Under N.J.S.A. § 39:4-50.14, a licensed driver under the age of 21 with a blood alcohol level of 0.01% or more will lose his or her license for a period of 30 days or more. An unlicensed driver who violates this law and is convicted will be prohibited from obtaining a driver’s license for a period of 30 days or more from the date that person is eligible to obtain a license or the date of conviction, whichever is later. In addition, those convicted must complete an alcohol education program and perform at least 15 days of community service.
