The DWI laws (also called DUI/DWI laws) in New Jersey are among the strictest in the nation.

Atlantic City is the destination for fun, and for many, alcohol consumption. This consumption produces arrests for drunk driving and a need for a drunk driving defense in Atlantic City or Atlantic County. Often, an arrest raises some questions.

When can I be charged with a drunk driving offense?

You can be charged with a drunk driving offense in the following situations:

  • A police officer has probable cause to believe that you are operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated;
  • And either a breath test shows that you are above the legal limit of 0.08 percent blood alcohol content;
  • Or your behavior and inability to perform various motor vehicle skill tests indicate that you are operating the vehicle while intoxicated.

But if you are stopped for any reason and the police officer has probable cause to believe you are operating a motor vehicle and are intoxicated, you may be required to take a breath test. The result of the breath test or your behavior and inability to perform various motor vehicle skill tests indicates if you are operating the vehicle while intoxicated and determines whether you are charged with drunk driving.

What should I do immediately when arrested for drunk driving?

If you experience a drunk driving arrest in Atlantic City, remember that this is an extremely serious offense. You can lose your license, spend time in jail, and end up paying substantial fees and surcharges, some of which are recurring over the course of three years. You do not have the right to refuse to submit to a breath test. The most important thing you should do is to call a lawyer, preferably at a firm known for skilled Atlantic City drunk driving attorneys, such as those at the law offices of Helmer, Conley & Kasselman, PA.
