Understanding implied consent laws

If you're pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence, you still do have certain rights. For example, you technically have the right to refuse to take a breath test. However, just having the right does not mean there are no ramifications to your actions.

Your wallet will feel the pain after a DUI

When talk about driving under the influence charges, most of the focus is centered on the person's negligence and how he or she deserves the legal punishments handed to them. In a certain respect, this could be true. But everyone is presumed innocent until they are proven to be guilty. And before then, they are entitled to their rights. Should they be found guilty, a hefty amount of penalties are placed upon them, such as the inability to drive (license suspension), years of probation and possibly even jail.

Know your rights if pulled over on suspicion of DWI or DWAI

A traffic stop may be the first contact you will have with New Jersey law enforcement officials in connection with a potential arrest for suspected drunk driving. Many people are under the impression that they must comply with the officer's instructions and answer any questions, but that might not be the case. Understanding your rights if you are pulled over might help later on if you are charged with DWI or DWAI.

How long you can lose your driver's license for a DUI in NJ
