What Is The Legal Blood Alcohol Limit For Truckers Driving Through New Jersey?

Commercial drivers in New Jersey are subject to different rules than others when it comes to DWI/DUI.

Most significantly, truckers are in violation of the law if their blood alcohol level is above .04%, or half the traditional legal limit for non-commercial drivers.

Second, the types of punishments available to a trucker are a little different as well.

If your cargo is non-hazardous, you may face a one-year exclusion from driving commercially.

If you’re hauling hazardous cargo and are stopped for DUI, you may face a three-year bar on working in your field.

Practically speaking, if you’re convicted of DWI as a commercial truck driver, it’s likely you’ll have a very hard time being hired by companies in your industry.

Attorney Matthew Reisig has helped more than 1,000 New Jersey drivers avoid conviction on DUI charges.
