New Egypt, New Jersey DUI Attorney

New Jersey Statute provides:

N.J.S.A. 39:4-50, Driving While Intoxicated: A person who operates a motor vehicle while under the influence of an intoxicating liquor, narcotic, hallucinogenic or habit-producing drug, or operates a motor vehicle with a Blood Alcohol Content in excess of 0.08% is guilty of Driving While Intoxicated under New Jersey State Law.

Essentially, a DWI conviction requires that the state must prove three (3) factors are present.

  1. Intoxication- Prosecutors must be able to prove through standardized tests or by way of an Alcotest machine, or through a chemical test (urine and blood), that the driver is intoxicated.
  2. Operation- The defendant must have actually operated the motor vehicle. Operation consists of four characteristics; 1. Control of the vehicle; 2. An intention to move the vehicle; 3. an action taken towards moving the vehicle; and 4. The ability of the vehicle to move.
  3. Motor Vehicle- The state must also establish that the defendant was operating a vehicle. A “motor vehicle” is any vehicle propelled otherwise than by muscular power.
