Because driving a motor vehicle is something that is essential to many people's everyday lives, it may also be something that many people take for granted. Drivers must constantly make multiple split-second decisions that account for a variety of different factors.

Unfortunately, police in New Jersey believe that a fatal accident was the result of a driver who was DWI, driving while intoxicated.
People who do not live in an area can easily become disoriented when driving in a new place. For example, someone from another state who is driving in New Jersey may accidentally overlook a traffic sign. Unfortunately, police claim that a recent accident that involved a missed stopped sign was the result of DWI rather than an oversight.

Car accidents happen for a variety of reasons. When an accident results in a fatality, the desire to place blame is understandable.

Car accidents can happen at any moment, for a variety of different reasons. However, when a person is driving a work vehicle, it is easy to understand that an error can be made regarding the vehicle's size and its ability to fit through an entrance or exit of a parking garage.

While many people would argue that a traffic circle has many advantages, some would also argue that they can be confusing for drivers. In fact, it might be easy for someone to accidentally enter the wrong way. Despite this, police in New Jersey have accused a driver allegedly driving the wrong way with DWI, among other charges.
Every single driver has likely made a mistake while behind the wheel of a motor vehicle. A misunderstanding of a traffic pattern or miscalculation of another driver's speed can have devastating consequences.

In fact, a man now faces a DWI charge, among others, after he was reportedly involved in a collision.
A car accident can happen at any time of the day. However, accidents are not uncommon during the early morning hours when a driver is fatigued. Unfortunately, it may be easy to make assumptions about those involved in an accident during certain hours of the day -- specifically, that he or she is drunk driving. In fact, police in New Jersey have accused a driver of impairment after he was allegedly involved in a fatal crash.
When most people read a news story alleging that a driver was arrested because he or she was under the influence of alcohol, they may be willing to accept the information provided by law enforcement officers without questioning it.

In fact, human error or deliberate oversight could result in inaccurate results. For example, over 20,000 drunk driving convictions in New Jersey are now being questioned.
