Jefferson NJ DWI Arrests and Charges
Driving while intoxicated DWI or Driving under the influence DUI essentially mean the same thing under NJ law. People use the terms interchangeably but essentially, it refers to driving a motor vehicle while impaired by a substance. The crux of the motor vehicle offense is that you ingested a substance whether it be alcohol or drugs, before or while you drove, and that substance prevented you from operating the motor vehicle safely. There are many ways that police find drunk drivers in Jefferson and other towns, roving DWI patrols being one, coupled with stopping people who seem to be driving too slowly or unsafely in some manner, people with broken tail lights, on cell phones, not wearing seatbelts, and the list goes on.
In addition, Jefferson Township Police and the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office frequently join together to organize and execute sobriety checkpoints in this busy municipality. You may have heard about some of them, as law enforcement will announce their intentions to conduct sobriety checks. The announcement for a DWI checkpoint is mandated by law, but the police will not tell you the exact location. These agencies receive federal funding to organize checkpoints to catch individuals driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. And With 133 miles in Jefferson, the police have a pretty good chance of catching someone driving while intoxicated and this often happens along Interstate 80, Routes 15 or 23 or county route 513. If this happened to you, the Jefferson DWI attorneys at our firm can help. To talk to a lawyer directly, contact us anytime. The consultation is complementary and we are happy to be of service by answering your unique questions.
