Why Was I Charged with Driving While Intoxicated in Oceanport?
When one pictures an intoxicated driver, one might think of a person who is stumbling over him- or herself while trying to walk to his or her car or a driver who is swerving all over the roadway. With this picture in mind, it may be confusing for you to be charged with DWI if you do not match this picture. However, New Jersey Revised Statutes Section 39:4-50 defines DWI as:
- Driving a vehicle while your alcohol concentration is .08 or greater;
- Driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol to a degree that renders you unable to safely operate your vehicle; and/or
- Lending your vehicle to another person who is under the influence of alcohol.
Not only this, but you may also be guilty of DWI if you perform any of the above-mentioned acts with drugs or a combination of drugs and alcohol. It is not a defense to DWI in Oceanport that you consumed legal drugs or that you did not know the extent of your impairment or intoxication.
