In New Jersey, it is unlawful for anyone to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or more. In addition, anyone who permits another to operate a motor vehicle owned by him or under his control to drive while intoxicated may also be convicted for DWI or DUI.
The penalties for driving drunk in New Jersey are severe. For example, a first DWI 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 possessing 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 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, a violator must perform at least 15 days of community service and complete an alcohol education program.
