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.
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.
