When you go out on the weekends with your friends, it is always important to have a plan of action to get home. Of course a designated driver is always the best way to avoid DWI charges, but this is not always an option. There are plenty of other options, like walking home for instance. But, it's January, and there's a pretty good chance that it is going to be cold. In a situation like this, make sure you do not get behind the wheel of a car if you have been drinking. The cost of hiring a cab is significantly less expensive than paying for a NJ DWI lawyer to defend you in court.
If you are pulled over in New Jersey and you have a BAC above 0.08 percent, you will be arrested and charged with a DWI. Worst of all, you will be endangering your life and the lives of others by driving under the influence of alcohol. Make sure you have a plan the next time you go out.
