Here is some important information about DUI in NJ, including some advanced methods that you can use to beat your charges.

Driving under the influence or DUI refers to operating a motor vehicle after having ingested drugs or alcohol.  The charge suggests impairment of your driving ability, based on whatever intoxicants you ingested.

When alcohol is involved, your state of intoxication is determined by a blood alcohol reading.  In New Jersey, the legal limit is 0.08 blood alcohol content.  Anything above that, and you could be convicted of DUI (or DWI depending on the state).

There are a number of factors that determine the severity of DUI or DWI penalties in NJ.

When other drugs are concerned, your DWI is more subjective.  For example, any marijuana use will result in a DUI… there is no “legal limit”.  The same can be said for prescription drugs, and other illegal substances such as heroin, methamphetamine, or cocaine.  Any ingestion of these intoxicants, and you could be found guilty of DUI if arrested and charged.

There are different processes involved for alcohol and drug related DUI charges.  If an officer suspects that you are guilty of an alcohol related DUI, he will arrest you and administer a breathalyzer test.  The same can not be said for other drug use, as this form of intoxication can not be assessed using a breath testing device.

In order to “prove” your guilt in a DUI case involving drugs, an expert in assessing intoxication must evaluate you upon your arrest.  In most cases, police officers are not able to surmise your guilt, based on their belief that you are intoxicated.  However, in marijuana cases, officers are able to make presumptions about your intoxication based on smell, appearance of your eyes, and several other factors. With regards to other drugs, a Drug Recognition Expert (known as a “DRE”) must be used to determine whether or not you are under the influence of drugs. A urine sample may also be taken to detect any drugs in your system.
