Yes, because the statute states that your awareness of a school zone or school crossing is immaterial to the charges.
The only thing that needs to be proven in an assault by auto case is that you were driving the vehicle, that you caused injury to another (bodily injury or serious bodily injury), and that your reckless operation of the vehicle was what caused the injury.
Violating New Jersey’s DWI statute is enough to prove reckless conduct, and there’s no defense in claiming you didn’t know where you were in relation to a school.
You’re facing an extremely serious charge that could put you away for up to a decade and force you to spend the rest of your life paying off a $150,000 fine, plus restitution and anything else the court decides you’re responsible for.
