Explaination

The penalties for refusing to submit to chemical testing are the same as for a first DUI offense with a BAC of 0.10%. (The legal BAC limit for adults is under 0.08%.) These penalties include license revocation for between seven months and one year (N.J.S.A. 39:4-50.4a) plus a violation surcharge of $1,000 per year for three years (N.J.S.A. 17:29A-35).
