In New Jersey, driving while intoxicated (DWI) or drunk driving is a serious offense. A person found to be operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level of 0.08% or above is guilty of DWI in New Jersey. DWI also includes circumstances where a person is found to be operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs. For example, if a police officer observes a person driving erratically and, after stopping the vehicle, believes the driver to be under the influence of drugs, the driver may be charged with DWI.
If a police officer believes a driver to be under the influence of alcohol, and thereby requires the driver to take a breathalyzer test, the driver has a legal obligation to comply. A driver under the age of 21 is considered to be under the influence of alcohol with a BAC of .01% or above.
