Penalties for Drunk Driving in New Jersey

Penalties for Drunk Driving

If you’ve been cited for drunk driving in New Jersey, you’ll want to know the possible penalties for a conviction. As in other states, the potential sanctions depend on how many prior convictions you’ve had. Here’s an overview.

Penalties for All DUI/DWI Convictions

Anyone convicted of violating DUI/DWI laws in New Jersey will be required to pay the following fees:

  • A $100 surcharge to the drunk driving enforcement fund
  • A $100 fee for motor vehicle restoration
  • A $100 violent crimes compensation fee
  • A $100 Intoxicated Driver Program fee
  • A $100 state and municipality fee

First Conviction

Even if you’ve never been convicted of drinking and driving before, you can be sentenced to up to 30 days in jail for a DUI/DWI. The financial penalties can range from $250 to $00 and you can lose your license for anywhere from three months to a year. An ignition interlock may also be required by the court.

Second Conviction

If you’ve been convicted once before, you can be sentenced to up to three months of incarceration and face a fine of $500 to $1,000. Your license will be suspended for two years and you may have to have an ignition interlock installed.

All Subsequent Convictions

For all subsequent convictions, you can face up to six months in jail, a $1,000 fine and the suspension of your license for 10 years. An ignition interlock device may also be required.
