Drunk Driving New Jersey – The Facts
Drunk driving in New Jersey is governed by the statute N.J.S.A. 39:4-50, and it’s a serious traffic offense (not a criminal charge). Before I tell you more about these charges, it’s important for me to note (as a defense attorney) that drunk driving in New Jersey is a very beatable offense.

The DWI statute applies to everything “intoxicating” that one could consume in New Jersey: alcohol, prescription pills, marijuana, cocaine, and all such drugs.
DWI in NJ is no different than DUI, they are both governed under the same statute. In fact, there is actually no such thing as DUI in New Jersey… it’s a popular misnomer. The only thing that exists (as far as your court case in concerned) is N.J.S.A. 39:4-50, there’s no difference between driving while intoxicated, and driving under the influence.
