The penalties associated with a first offense of driving while intoxicated (DWI) in New Jersey depend upon the level of intoxication. The legal limit in New Jersey is .08% Blood Alcohol Content (BAC). Therefore, if you or your loved one is charged with DWI and your BAC is between .08% and .10%, then you face a fine of $250 to $400, a three-month license suspension, and up to thirty days in jail. The penalties associated with a first offense DWI significantly increase if your BAC was greater than .10% at the time of arrest. In this case, you or your loved one faces between a seven months and one year license suspension, $300 to $500 in fines, and up to thirty days in prison.
