All commercial drivers know they are not allowed to drink and drive. Not all of these drivers understand how harsh the DUI laws for truck drivers are though. Both the rules and penalties are far stricter when it comes to drinking and driving and commercial truck drivers.
A New Jersey commercial DUI lawyer can help you understand your rights on the road and, if necessary, fight against any DUI charges brought up against you.
If you drink just three beers, your BAC may be at 0.04%. Unfortunately, that low number is still high enough to qualify you for DUI under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act.
Even if you are driving a personal, passenger car, you are still subject to this federal law as long as you have a commercial driver’s license.
If you are convicted of driving under the influence, you can lose your commercial license for a full year. If you are driving a hazmat truck at the time, the suspension rises to three years.
If you already have a DUI on your record, you may permanently lose your license. You will even be considered guilty if you refused to take a breathalyzer or blood test.
If your BAC was above 0.08%, you will also face New Jersey state laws and may also face jail time.
To save your job in these situations, you will need a New Jersey DUI attorney with experience fighting DUI charges against commercial truck drivers.
