What Is Aggravated DWI in New Jersey?

Aggravated DWI charges are typically applied when certain aggravating factors are present during the offense, such as an extremely high blood alcohol concentration (BAC), previous DWI convictions, or other circumstances that exacerbate the offense.

Here are some examples of situations that could result in an aggravated DWI charge in New Jersey:

  • High BAC: If a driver operates a motor vehicle with a BAC of 0.15% or higher, it may lead to an aggravated DWI charge. The legal limit for a standard DWI charge in New Jersey is 0.08%, but a BAC of 0.15% or above is considered a higher level of intoxication and can result in more severe penalties.

  • Multiple DWI convictions: If a driver has previously been convicted of DWI offenses, subsequent DWI arrests may be charged as aggravated DWI. New Jersey imposes harsher penalties for repeat DWI offenders, including longer license suspensions, mandatory ignition interlock devices, and potential jail time.

  • DWI in a school zone: If a driver is arrested for DWI within 1,000 feet of a school or school crossing zone, it can lead to an aggravated DWI charge. School zones include areas around elementary or secondary schools during specified hours when children are present.

  • DWI with a suspended license: If a driver operates a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs while their driver's license is already suspended or revoked, it can result in an aggravated DWI charge. Driving with a suspended license is a serious offense on its own, and when combined with a DWI, the consequences can be more severe.

  • Reckless driving or accidents: If a driver is arrested for DWI and is found to have been operating the vehicle in a reckless manner or involved in a motor vehicle accident causing property damage, injuries, or fatalities, it can lead to an aggravated DWI charge. The presence of these additional factors can elevate the severity of the offense.
