Somerset and Mercer County DUI Law+
In New Jersey, the legal blood alcohol content (BAC) limit for drivers over the age of 21 is 0.08. However, you could still be charged with a DUI if your BAC is lower than 0.08. Penalties vary based on criminal history, the age of the driver, the BAC level at the time of arrest, and other factors, but in general, drivers convicted of DUI can expect to be hit with hefty fines and the prompt loss of driving privileges. It is therefore absolutely imperative to seek legal representation.
Traffic Tickets in Somerset and Mercer Counties+
It may be tempting to simply pay the fines attached to traffic tickets and move on, but depending on your situation, this approach could prove devastating—especially if you believe that you are not guilty of the traffic violation with which you've been charged. If you simply pay the fine, you may have to deal with added points on your record, making the likelihood of license suspension far greater should additional traffic violations occur. Furthermore, your insurance rates may increase significantly if you do not fight your traffic ticket.
