Charged with DWI in Belmar
After being arrested and charged with DWI Belmar, New Jersey, you will need to appear in Belmar Municipal Court. N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 makes it illegal “for any person to operate a motor vehicle on any state or public road, who is under the influence of intoxicating liquor, narcotic, hallucinogenic or habit-producing drug.” The legal limit is defined as a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% which can be determined by a breath test using the Dräger Alcotest® 7110 device. It should be noted that any BAC reading that is at 0.08% or above is against the law. Depending on the reading, first-time offenders can face increased penalties depending on the threshold they fall under. If a Belmar driver has had a previous DWI conviction, the offense carries much more serious consequences.
If convicted of DWI in Belmar, you will be looking at a suspension of your driver's license that can be for a minimum of 3 months to 1 year for first-time offenders. Depending on the case, the driver can also face time in jail, be forced to participate in programs at an Intoxicated Driver Resource Center, and pay costly fines. The penalties for DWI convictions are also long lasting as drivers will be forced to pay a $1,000 a year insurance surcharge for the next 3 years and may be required to install an interlock ignition device on their vehicle after their license is restored.
