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 be required to take a field sobriety test if law enforcement has probable cause to implement one. Breath tests are mandatory by law if there is reasonable cause to perform one.
As a partner and founding member of Villani & DeLuca, P.C., Carmine Villani, Esq. has disputed DUI/DWI claims in NJ for years. Mr. Villani was previously a prosecutor and is now a member of the National College for DWI Defense. Mr. Villani has studied all matters of DWI and DUI in order to build stronger legal defense strategies for each of his clients.
Alcotest® and Breathalyzer Training
The Draeger Alcotest® 7110 and Breathalyzer devices must be operated according to guidelines set by the state in order to demonstrate exact measurements and be considered legally admissible. Mr. Villani focuses on the assessment of these procedures. He has been given the same training as NJ law enforcement and can take note of incorrect administration of a breath test by vigilantly considering official police procedures, machine calibration and maintenance standards.
Field Sobriety Test Procedures
You must obey an officer who has asked that you take the standardized field sobriety test (SFST) if the officer believes you are inebriated and should not be driving. But, the evidence of a field sobriety test is only useful if it was properly administered.
Drug-Related DUI Arrests
If you think you have been wrongly charged with driving under the influence of illegal drugs, you should take the advice of a lawyer who has been trained in drug recognition evaluation. Mr. Villani and his team of DWI lawyers will protect you you from these charges by indicating incorrect steps taken by law enforcement that led to your charges.
Charges and Penalties NJ DUI Lawyers Will Dispute
The penalties associated with DWI are not insignificant. You can lose your license for a maximum of 10 years and face a fine of up to $1,000. If you were arrested for DWI before, fines and penalties will increase.

Breath Test Refusal
declined to participate in a breath test in New Jersey? Refusal charges can create heavier fines and penalties than driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If probable cause has been demonstrated, you are not allowed by law to refuse a breath test administered by a police officer.
Were youpulled over and forced to take a breath test without probable cause? It is illegal to force a person to take a breath test if he or she was asked to do so without probable cause. You can fight your charges on the basis that the police officer who arrested you never actually tried to prove probable cause.
How DWI Checkpoints Work in NJ
You may be questioned in the event of being stopped by law enforcement at a DUI checkpoint. But, you do not have to answer questions other than basic information such as your given name and address. Also, your trunk should not be searched without a warrant.
The events that transpire at a DWI checkpoint leading up to an arrest will make a big impact on the way a trial occurs. Qualified DUI attorneys know how officers are qualified to handle road blocks and will pursue a strong defense based on your treatment.
