DWI Checkpoint Being Conducted in Morris Township Today

DWI Checkpoint Morris Township, NJ

Potential DWI, DUI Arrests in Morris Twp. Based on Police Sobriety Checkpoint

DWI Checkpoint Arrest Morris Township NJThe Morris Township police are conducting a sobriety checkpoint also known as a DWI checkpoint today at 9 p.m. at an undisclosed location in Morris Township. Police will be stopping vehicles to determine if any drivers are impaired based on the consumption of alcohol or drugs. DWI checkpoints are legal in New Jersey under State v. Moskal as long as certain criteria are met.

The police must show statistical data that there are a number of DWI arrests in that particular area which justifies the need to conduct a DWI checkpoint. They also must provide notice to the public of the checkpoint being conducted which they have done by posting the checkpoint in the newspaper and online. In addition, there must be proper supervision by law enforcement. This typically means a sergeant, lieutenant or captain must be present to oversee the operation and to assist in any arrests, prosecutions. Finally, the officers must conduct the stops at random without using any bias such as race, gender, type of vehicle, etc. They typically do that by choosing every 4th car or every 5th car for example for the random stop.

If you are stopped at a DWI checkpoint you must comply with the directions of law enforcement and provide your driving credentials (license, registration, insurance). If police suspect that you have been drinking, they will ask you to get out of the vehicle and perform field sobriety tests. Typical signs of impairment include odor of alcohol in the vehicle or on your breath, slow or stuttered speech, failure to answer their questions properly, or open containers of alcohol in the motor vehicle.

If you are asked to get out of the vehicle to perform field sobriety tests, you should do so. Otherwise, they will place you under arrest for DWI and take you to the station to perform a breath test. The typical field sobriety tests that are conducted are the horizontal gaze nystagmus test (known as the “HGN”), the “walk and turn test”, and the “one leg stand test”. These are standardized tests that must be demonstrated for you and the proper instructions must be given by police in order for the tests to be valid.
