DWI Archives

Relief for DWI charges could follow Breathalyzer scandal

New Jersey police officers rely heavily on Breathalyzer test results when making drunk driving arrests. Breathalyzers are typically thought of as accurate testing devices that produce infallible results, but this is far from the truth. As many as 20,000 drivers facing DWI charges could soon face just relief after a Breathalyzer scandal rocked the state.

DWI charges for New Jersey tunnel driver

A man has recently been charged with several crimes after an incident in the Holland Tunnel. The New Jersey man allegedly drove drunk through the tunnel and almost struck several cars. He was arrested on DWI charges. It is likely the man is contemplating his options for defending himself against these charges. Since he is innocent until proved guilty, it will be on the state to prove the case against him. 

Diversion penalties considered for New Jersey DWI recipients

The law should ensure that lawbreakers receive needed penalties without negatively impacting the rest of their lives and providing them with the opportunity to function as upstanding members of society. This allows a person convicted of a crime the chance to turn things around while still paying back the debt to society. First-time DWI offenders may soon be able to complete a diversion program in New Jersey, if momentum grows for changing current law. 

New Jersey rookie pleads to downgraded DWI charges

A rookie police officer found herself on the wrong end of a police chase and faced numerous charges. The officer was apprehended and charged following a DWI arrest. The New Jersey police department in Scotch Plains has finally agreed to release video of the incident, as revealed by a recent news story. 

Are field sobriety tests reliable?

Have you or has someone you know been arrested for and charged with a drunk driving offense in New Jersey? If so, you or your friend may have been asked to perform certain actions or have certain abilities tested by law enforcement officers after you were stopped but before you were arrested. Commonly referred to as field sobriety tests, these tests do not have the ability to prove that you are intoxicated or even to determine a level of intoxication. They are instead used to give enough substance to the potential that you may be intoxicated so as to support an officer legally placing you under arrest.

Drivers should choose carefully over Fourth of July

With the Fourth of July holiday just around the corner, New Jersey residents are likely putting the finishing touches on their holiday weekend plans. Whether staying close to home or travelling away over the long weekend, it might be wise for those plans to include options on how to avoid driving after consuming alcohol. A single drunk driving arrest can wreck havoc on a driver's life even if a conviction is not ultimately achieved in the case.

Drugs and driving

The recent arrest of famed golfer Tiger Woods has shined a spotlight on a problem that is on the rise in New Jersey and across the nation. More and more drivers are getting behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs, and it is a significant public safety hazard.
