DUI Defense Lawyer Helps Clients Fight South Brunswick Drunk Driving Charges
In New Jersey, operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (“BAC”) of 0.08% or more is considered driving while intoxicated (“DWI”). A breathalyzer test known as the “alcotest” will determine your BAC.
If you are charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI)/ driving under the influence (DUI) in South Brunswick, it is important to consult an experienced New Jersey DWI lawyer. The penalties for DWI/DUI are severe. For example, the first conviction for DWI could result in a loss of license for anywhere from three (3) months to a year. Those found guilty of DWI also face a fine of up to $500 as well as possible imprisonment.
Furthermore, New Jersey assesses a surcharge of $1,000 per year for three (3) years. Failure to pay the surcharge may result in: Indefinite suspension of driving privileges; and action filed in State Superior Court by MVC which may result in securing a lien against your property, garnishing your wages or other similar action. Those convicted of a repeat offense, the penalties become even more severe: a second conviction within 10 years of the first may result in a 2 year loss of license and a third conviction within 10 years of the second may result in loss of license for 10 years.
