New Jersey & Pennsylvania Drunk Driving Lawyers

Drunk driving offenses in New Jersey or Pennsylvania are more common than you might think. The consumption of alcohol can dull the senses, decrease reaction time, and result in limited vision and alertness. Most importantly, alcohol consumption can hinder judgment. This is probably why most drunk drivers get behind the wheel in the first place. Unfortunately, a single mistake could have devastating consequences for you and your family. A DWI conviction can seriously disrupt your life because you will probably lose your driver’s license and potentially be sentenced to jail time. That’s why the best thing you can do right now is contact an experienced lawyer.

DWI Charges in New Jersey and Pennsylvania

The legal limit in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania is .08 percent blood alcohol concentration (BAC). Anyone caught operating a motor vehicle with a BAC of .08 percent or higher can be charged with drunk driving. Additionally, it is important to know that you can be charged with a DWI even if you refuse to take a breath test. That’s because prosecutors can rely on a police officer’s observations to prove that you were under the influence of alcohol.

Although a DWI charge is serious no matter where you are charged, DWI laws differ from state to state. For example, DWI violations in New Jersey are considered traffic offenses. By contrast, a DWI or DUI violation in Pennsylvania is classified as a criminal offense.
