...and How Does "Camden County DWI Law" Affect My DWI Charges

 

If you drive for a living in Camden County New Jersey, chances are you have seen your fair share of DWI stops. This serious traffic ticket brings with it heavy fines, insurance complications, license suspension and possible jail time. The stakes are even higher if you are a CDL driver (commercial drivers license). The acceptable level of BAC (blood alcohol concentration) is lower, and if a fatal accident occurs while intoxicated, there is a possible charge of vehicular homicide.

The standard blood alcohol content limit in New Jersey is .08%. For CDL drivers the limit is lowered to .04%. When charged investigated for a DWI, a police officer will administer field sobriety tests to determine if you are intoxicated and will give require that you submit to chemical testing to determine BAC. Following the test, you will be held until sober, or until a sober adult can take you home.

In the next couple of months, court appearances will be required. Defendants with attorney representation will not have to appear until a pre-trial hearing is scheduled. Defendants without representation will have to attend an arraignment. Also, because New Jersey considers DWI to be very serious, they do not consider plea bargains.

At trial, a competent DWI lawyer will be able to challenge any of the tests a police officer administered to try to prove intoxication. A Camden County DWI lawyer will also be able to file a motion to suppress certain evidence, contact expert witnesses in your behalf and, perhaps, even get your case dismissed in the pre-trial phase.
