No, while there are penalty enhancements when a driver’s BAC was above .10%, drivers who have been charged with DWI in New Jersey but whose Alcotest results were lower than the legal limit are not entitled to any potential sentence reductions.
If a cop felt that you were displayed evidence of intoxication, you can be charged with DWI even with a blood alcohol concentration far below .08%.
For drivers under 21, the level that is considered legal evidence of intoxication is .01%.
Your best chance at avoiding DWI penalties, regardless of your BAC, is to work with an experienced New Jersey DWI defense lawyer.
In cases where chemical testing shows you weren’t legally over the limit, you have all the reason in the world to fight back.
Attorney Matthew Reisig has helped more than 1,000 New Jersey drivers avoid conviction of DWI charges.
