New Jersey also holds similar laws like other states in the US in terms of DUI/DWI, which means driving under the influence of or while intoxicated with drugs or alcohol over the legal limit. The legal limit of Blood alcohol, according to the law is about 0.08% in adults, 0.02% in the minors and 0.04% for commercial vehicles.
If this limit is violated and if the drunk driver refuses the chemical test that can be performed by the enforcement officer, then the individual will be imprisoned. DUI/DWI convictions once filed can last for 10 years and the severity of the penalty increases with the every offense charged.
