What Is Drugged Driving?

In New Jersey, any drug that impairs your ability to drive can result in DUI charges. Examples include:

  • Illegal drugs such as marijuana, cocaine and heroin
  • Prescription drugs such as OxyContin and oxycodone
  • Sleeping pills such as Ambien, Lunesta, Nytol and Sominex
  • Over-the-counter drugs such as NyQuil and Benadryl

If a police officer suspects you of driving while impaired by drugs, he or she can order a blood test or urine test. Drugged driving is a highly technical charge that requires a technical defense. Attorney Stephen D. Williams will advocate aggressively on your behalf, raising possible defenses such as:

  • Whether the stop was legal
  • Whether the police officer had the necessary expertise to recognize drug impairment
  • Whether the blood or urine test was properly administered

In New Jersey, the consequences of a drugged driving conviction are the same as those for drunk driving. Attorney Stephen D. Williams' top priority is to protect you from a serious charge that can have a devastating effect on your life.
