The Borough of Red Bank, NJ is a popular destination for visitors to soak in area culture and art, go shopping, and enjoy fine dining. With a variety of antique shops, jewelry stores, art galleries, and independently owned shops of every type, Red Bank, NJ promises a bevy of choices to visitors and residents alike!

The area welcomes a variety of visitors to a variety of events year-round, everything from summertime fireworks and boating to winter holiday events and ice boating. Maybe because of the numerous choices or because of how much fun beckon, everyone from the very young to the more mature visit and enjoy the Red Bank area. If you haven’t toured the borough recently, why not make the trek soon?

As visitors descend on the area, perhaps the last thing on many people’s minds is remembering to take proper safety precautions. Safety concerns include many things but one that may slip area visitors’ minds is taking the time to plan ahead by designating a sober driver. While doing so makes sense to anyone familiar with the steep penalties for driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Red Bank, NJ and throughout the state.

Underage Drinking and Driving Consequences in New Jersey

But what happens when the driver charged with DWI is actually below the legal drinking age to begin with? A designated driver won’t be able to help in that case.

It goes without saying that underage drinking and driving do not mix. If it happens, however, that you or a loved one is charged with DWI in Red Bank, NJ or anywhere else in the state here are some important things to keep in mind.

First, the blood alcohol concentration for anyone under the age of 21 is zero-percent (0%). That means that any percentage BAC greater than zero will result in a DWI charge. Next, the penalties for underage DWI differ from adult penalties. More specifically the state assesses additional penalties than those given to adults. For instance, if you are under the age of 21 (the legal drinking age in New Jersey) and are convicted for DWI or boating while under the influence with a BAC greater than 0%, the state says that the “following penalties apply:

  • 30–90 day license suspension
  • 15–30 days mandatory community service
  • Participation in alcohol education and highway safety programs at an Intoxicated Driver Resource Center
  • Additionally, if you are unlicensed and under 17 years of age at the time of the incident, you are subject to a 30–90 day delay in processing your driver license.”
