Representing Clients Charged with DWI/DUI
The consequences of a DWI / DUI conviction can be life altering. The fines due to a conviction create a serious financial burden, and the loss of your driver’s license could jeopardize your employment. Due to the severe fines and penalties, it is imperative that you contact an experienced DWI / DUI attorney such as the Rubas Law Offices.
What Is A DWI / DUI? And Are You Required to Take a Blood Alcohol Test?
DWI / DUI stands for driving while impaired / driving under the influence. In New Jersey, a person who is charged with a DWI is considered impaired when their blood alcohol content (BAC) measures at .08% or above. A person is considered DUI when they are impaired and driving under the influence of drugs. A person’s BAC is most often determined with a machine that measures the alcohol content based on a person’s breath called the Alcotest. Breath tests are usually performed at the police station after a driver is stopped in their motor vehicle; however, the police may, at times, seek to conduct blood or urine tests at the municipal detention facility.
