Recent Union County DUI Charges

One man was charged with drinking and driving in Clark. Like most DUIs, the driver was pulled over for a traffic violation. In this case it was failure to keep right and after the police made the stop, he was also charged with failure to produce registration. The man was arrested after he blew a .17 BAC into the breathalyzer machine. In another case that same week, a 42-year-old man was charged for drinking and driving in Rahway. He was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol after her blew a .15 BAC into the breathalyzer. Officers also charged with failure to stop.

New Jersey DUI charges can arise in a variety of situations. In many DWI cases, a driver is pulled over for a traffic violation and upon questioning the police find it necessary to conduct a breathalyzer or field sobriety test. Having an understanding of New Jersey DUI law and your rights is one of the first steps to an avid defense against your Union County DWI charge.

A DUI stop only takes a couple of minutes, but it can affect the rest of your life. Luckily, there are many things an attorney can do to alleviate the severity of DWI charges. The constitutionality of the traffic stop and the reliability of breathalyzer procedures used to obtain probable cause for a DUI arrest are two very fertile areas of defense in DUI cases.
