Nashua, NH (PressExposure) May 02, 2011 -- DUI attorney NH has Offices in Manchester, Bedford, Nashua, Concord, Portsmouth and New Hampshire. The DUI lawyer, Daniel Hynes says, "In the wake of increasing DWI charges, it is very important that the people of New Hampshire are aware of the DUI laws and regulations in the state and they can protect their rights.
More popular as DWI guy New Hampshire in Nashua, Portsmouth, Bedford, Concord and Manchester, I frequently encounter people who are barely knowledgeable about DWI regulations in the state. So I thought it is my duty to educate the people of the New Hampshire about the laws and regulations governing DWI and DUI in the state. Following are the laws and regulations existent in NH (subject to change):
According to section 265-A: 2, it is against law to either operate or attempt to drive an OHRV in NH under the influence of intoxicants such as alcohol, drugs, or a combination thereof with a BAC (blood alcohol concentration) level equal or greater than 0.08%.
It's not essential that a person stopped on suspicion show signs of impairment, but the fact that the person's BAC is above legal limit of 0.08% (or higher) can get the person arrested and booked under DUI in the New Hampshire.
Even if a person's BAC level is under the legal limit, a person can get charged with DWI offense if he/she should be displaying signs of impairment (that're consistent with DUI)."
The DWI lawyer added, "The penalties can be so severe that every motorist should be aware of:
For the first time DWI offenders in NH
The convicted person can be jailed for a minimum of 10 days (in case of aggravated DUI)
Imposed a fine of minimum $500 and $750 (in case of aggravated DWI)
