If you find yourself to be one of the many drivers suspected of these charges, you need to contact Miller & Borgen immediately. DUI laws make it unlawful for a person to operate a car, truck, motorcycle, or commercial vehicle if the driver’s ability to safely operate the vehicle is impaired by the effects of alcohol, illegal drugs, prescribed medications such as painkillers, or even over-the-counter medications like antihistamines. In New Jersey, a driver with a blood-alcohol concentration above .08 percent is guilty of driving while intoxicated. New Jersey laws impose penalties on drunk drivers, which range from paying fines to incarceration and loss of driving privileges. In general, repeat offenders or offenders with a high blood-alcohol level are subject to more severe penalties.
