What are the DWI laws in NJ?

The legal limit for driving in NJ is a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08%, and a reading at or above this legal limit will lead to DWI charges. A driver will have to take a field sobriety test if an officer has probable cause to implement one. Breath tests are mandatory by law if there is reasonable cause to perform one.

Trained in Alcotest® and Breathalyzer

If a breath test is not handled properly, reading may be inaccurate. Carmine Villani is trained to recognize incorrect procedure. He has had the same training as New Jersey law enforcement and will take note of incorrect administration of a breath test by carefully reviewing official police procedures, machine calibration and maintenance standards.

Field Sobriety Test Procedures

Law enforcement is authorized to use the standardized field sobriety test (SFST) on people suspected of drinking and driving or of having other substance-related impairments. These tests are only reliable if they follow the exact, standardized method of implementation.

Drug-Related DUI Arrests

Drug recognition evaluation (DRE) is the process by which law enforcement determines whether a driver is using drugs. But,, much like with the standardized field sobriety test, errors can be made during the process. If an error has indeed occurred, your lawyer will fight the charges on the grounds that the drug recognition evaluation was not implemented according to the law. Villani & DeLuca DUI lawyers are trained in exposing bad results in order to protect the rights of clients.

How to Challenge Charges With a Lawyer

Consequences for a DUI conviction are severe in New Jersey. License revocations can go for up to 10 years and fines can reach $1,000 dollars. Bigger DWI penalties and fines take place if you have been previously convicted for driving while intoxicated.
Were you falsely charged with DUI in Lakehurst, New Jersey? False BAC levels occur because of many different factors. If you believe you were falsely charged, hire Villani & DeLuca to begin fighting for you right away.

Breath Test Refusal

The implied consent law that is implemented by officers in NJ states that you do not have the right to say no to a breath test if there is enough cause to think that you have been driving drunk. Turning down a breath test will lead to refusal charges and an arrest. Refusal charges in New Jersey can even dwarf the charges that result if you are convicted of a DWI.
Were youstopped and forced to blow into a Breathalyzer without probable cause? Police officers are not allowed to conduct a breath test without making a real attempt to prove probable cause. Your charges can be defeated in court if the officer who conducted the test was not trying to look for probable cause.

DWI Checkpoints

You may be questioned after being stopped by law enforcement at a DUI checkpoint. But, you don't have to answer questions other than basic information such as your name and address. The trunk of a car may not be opened without permission or a warrant.
The behavior of the officer who arrested you at a DUI checkpoint may be part of your legal strategy during a trial. If you were treated badly, your charges might be dropped or reduced.
