Drugged driving is a big problem

Do you think you can only get a DUI in New Jersey if you are driving while drunk? Think again. If you are arrested for driving under the influence, this refers to alcohol and/or drugs, including those prescribed by a doctor. Drivers who are unaware of the consequences of taking drugs and getting behind the wheel can contribute to major accidents that result in injuries and even death.

Understanding the body's alcohol metabolism rate

Like many that come to us here at The Law Offices of Palumbo & Renaud after having been arrested for drunk driving in Cranford, you might question how it is even possible to challenge such a charge. Say that you are stopped for suspicion of drunk driving. A breathalzyer tests shows your blood-alcohol content to be .08. You are arrested and are asked to do a confirmatory chemical breath test one hour later, which registers a reading of .016. This is well within the legal limit, yet the arresting officer says that it simply means most of the alcohol has passed out of your system since you were stopped. 

What are common drunk driving defenses?

There's so many ways that a false drunk driving charge can happen. In fact, criminal law judges are fully aware that police can make mistakes when arresting and accusing a driver of being intoxicated behind the wheel. For this reason, every driver accused of DUI will have the opportunity to defend him or herself against the allegations.
