No, DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) is how New Jersey describes the offense commonly referred to as “DUI.”
Unlike most states though, New Jersey doesn’t prosecute DWI as a criminal matter, so a conviction for DWI can have less impact on your future than it might in other states.
That doesn’t mean there are no penalties though. You’ll still have to deal with a suspended license, big fines, and possibly even jail time if you’re convicted of DWI in New Jersey.
And of course, your insurance rates will be astronomical after a DWI conviction.
Save yourself a lot of trouble and expense by working with one of New Jersey’s most experienced DWI defense attorneys.
