New Jersey cops taking drivers into custody for DUI

Hillsborough Township Police started off January 2016 by detaining multiple individuals for DUIs in separate incidents. According to reports, the first police action took place on New Years Day, when an 18-year-old man apparently experienced a wreck on South Branch Road. Police indicted him for not keeping right properly and also charged him with driving under the influence as an underage individual.

NTSB suggests BAC limit change to extreme low

How many drinks do you think takes to get you to the legal DUI limit? It is general knowledge that in New Jersey and the rest of the U.S., the legal limit for drunk driving cases is 0.08 percent blood alcohol concentration. The law can get more complicated, but that is the rule of thumb that most drivers rely upon. 

NTSB calls for lower blood alcohol levels for drivers

The legal status of impairment in New Jersey and nationwide occurs when a driver has a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher. The National Transportation Safety Board has deemed this level inadequate for protecting motorists from impaired drivers. In its most recent recommendations for policy improvements, the agency advocated for a new legal blood alcohol content level of 0.05 or lower.

New Jersey man suspected of DWI, found trapped under vehicle

Probable cause is required for law enforcement authorities to pull over motorists and ask for things like breath tests, and a vehicle driving erratically might give an officer enough reason to suspect intoxication. A Rochelle Park man learned the hard way that other things can also give the authorities probable cause after he was found on Jan. 11 stuck under his own 1998 Jeep.

Wine could make you drunker than you think

Many New Jersey residents enjoy a glass of red wine with their dinners, particular those who indulge in Italian fare. While wine might be a regular part of your evening meal, it is valuable to learn what some researchers have discovered about the vino that you innocently enjoy and love. 

Woman beats DUI charge due to rare syndrome

It might be a surprise to New Jersey drivers that a New York judge has dropped a DUI charge against a teacher because she has auto-brewery syndrome. Although the medical condition sounds fake, it is real and makes sufferers appear intoxicated. The woman, a 35-year-old New York resident, was detained in 2014 after a 911 caller reported that she was weaving on the road. Authorities reportedly discovered her driving on a flat tire. The woman's eyes were allegedly bloodshot and glassy, and her speech was slurred. She told officials that she only had three cocktails, but the results of a breath test showed a blood alcohol concentration of .33 percent.
