Woodland Park DWI Defense
Recent statistics from the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General show that over 30 percent of all traffic fatality accidents in Woodland Park and throughout New Jersey involve one or more drivers who are under the influence of alcohol to some degree. Because alcohol is known to have a negative impact on a person’s ability to safely drive a motor vehicle, even smaller New Jersey communities such as Woodland Park attempt to catch and punish drivers who are driving while intoxicated (DWI) before these dangerous drivers cause an injury or fatal crash.

Being charged with any crime in Woodland Park – much less DWI (a serious “traffic” offense in N.J.) – can be a frightening or confusing experience. You may have many questions such as:
- What is the legal limit in New Jersey? Like many states, New Jersey law makes it a crime for an adult to drive a motor vehicle with a blood or breath alcohol concentration of 0.08 or greater. Note, though, that you can be charged with DWI if you are “impaired” in any manner, even if your alcohol concentration is less than 0.08;
- Why am I charged with DWI when I wasn’t even driving? It is a crime in New Jersey for you to lend your car to another person when you know or should know that that other person is too intoxicated or impaired to drive. Under this subsection of the law, it would not matter whether you yourself were intoxicated or had even consumed alcohol.
- What penalties might I receive if I am convicted? Depending on the number of previous DWI convictions, your level of intoxication, and/or whether you caused any injuries or deaths, you may be sentenced to several months in jail, assessed hundreds of dollars in fines, and/or lose your driving privileges for a period of time.
