Camden County DWI Law

People driving a vehicle in New Jersey have to pass through a DWI checkpoint often and if a DWI traffic ticket is issued to someone, then he/she faces driver’s license suspension, jail-time and also has to pay a large amount of money in fines. The penalties of DWI for a CDL driver are higher and if a fatal accident happens as a result of driving while intoxicated, then the person can be charged for vehicular homicide. The acceptable level of BAC is lower for drivers with a commercial driver’s license.

The legal BAC limit in New Jersey is 0.08 percent and it is lower for CDL drivers, which is 0.04 percent. After pulling over the suspected driver, the police officer gives a field sobriety test to observe whether an individual is under the influence or not. Samples of blood, urine and breath are may be taken to check the level of intoxication. After investigation, the person is transferred to the jail until a sober friend or family member comes to take him/her home.

Court appearances are required in the next 2 months of a DUI arrest. Defendants with lawyer representation will not have to appear until a pre-trial hearing is scheduled by court but defendants without representation will have to attend an arraignment. Plea bargains are not considered as New Jersey considers DWI a serious offense and stops DWI drivers to drive on the roads.

A professional DWI attorney will be able to challenge any of the tests a police officer administered to try to prove that the person was driving under the influence. A Camden County DWI attorney will also be able to file a motion to suppress certain evidence proof, contact expert witnesses on behalf of the individual and may even be able to get the case dismissed in the pre-trial phase.
