About Driving Under the Influence of Drugs
Driving under the influence in New Jersey constitutes more than just driving while under the influence of alcohol. It also includes driving while impaired under the influence of narcotics, habit-forming, and hallucinogenic drugs. Under the New Jersey DUI Statute, there are a wide variety of both illegal and legal substances which can be classified as either narcotic, habit-forming, or hallucinogenic drugs, including heroine, Xanax, and even school glue. However, proving a DUI drug charge is much more difficult than proving that of a DUI by alcohol intoxication. If convicted, the DUI drug violation penalties are equivocal to DUI alcohol penalties.
New Jersey Drug DUI Attorneys
New Jersey enacted the DUI drug statute to ensure all motorists operating a vehicle while impaired by any drug would be held accountable for their actions. In fact, New Jersey law enforcement proactively fights against DUIs of drug and alcohol by setting up DWI checkpoints across the state at random intervals and locations in an attempt to deter DUI activity. However, the applied consent that exists when driving under the influence of alcohol cannot be used for driving under the influence of drugs. Drivers have the right to refuse testing. In addition, law enforcement agencies are required to utilize a drug recognition expert “DRE” when determining an individual’s level of drug intoxication.
