Being charged with a DUI is a serious matter. Drunk driving is an issue that law enforcement and courts are proactive in fighting. Both states have similar laws and consequences for those who are caught over the legal limit. The only scientific way to establish the amount of alcohol in a person’s system is through the assessment of one’s blood alcohol content (BAC). For both states, the legal limit of alcohol is 0.08% BAC.
Both New Jersey and Pennsylvania follow a point system for traffic violations. If you are issued a traffic ticket for any of the various infractions, it is important to have quality legal representation to help you avoid points to your driving record. In both states, points to one’s driving record have a financial impact.
An arrest record or conviction can seriously impact a person’s future. An arrest or conviction can affect one’s ability to get a job, housing, and may even impact schooling. If eligible, one can solve this problem through the process of expungement. Expungement is a way to “clear” one’s criminal record from the public eye.
