Middlesex County, NJ High BAC DUI Attorney

High BAC

Defending NJ clients against High BAC DUI tickets

Driving under the influence of alcohol is illegal in the United States. In New Jersey, law enforcement seeks out people who get behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated in order to protect others on the road. If you are caught driving under the influence of alcohol in New Jersey, you face a serious situation that comes with overwhelming fines, possible jail time, and other serious penalties. The only scientific way to determine if someone is too drunk to drive is by determining their blood alcohol content (BAC). You face a regular DUI if your BAC is over .08% but below .10%. If you are caught with a blood alcohol level over .10% you may be issued a DUI which comes with escalating penalties. If you have been issued a DUI with a high BAC, you need to retain the services of an attorney with the experience that can give you the best chance of fighting these charges.

Penalties for a High BAC DUI

A blood alcohol content over 0.10% comes with escalating penalties. For such a high BAC level, you are facing penalties, including:

  • Up to 30 days of incarceration
  • License suspension for 7-12 months
  • A $1000 surcharge per year for 3 years
  • A $300-$500 fine
  • 12-48 hours in the Intoxicated Driver Resource Center (IDRC) and related fees
  • A $100 Alcohol Education and Rehabilitation Fund fee
  • A $100 Drunk Driving Fund fee
