During the holidays, many people drink more than they normally do. At holiday gatherings, alcohol is often free and free-flowing. Police in New Jersey and across the country know that and often step up DWI enforcement around the holidays.
Being arrested for DWI can be a frightening experience. Whether a police officer determined based on his or her observation that you were driving while impaired, or testing showed that you had a blood alcohol content over the legal limit (.08) or drugs in your system, you can be taken into custody.
As the country looks to celebrate the birth of our nation, some Americans may be inclined to celebrate a little too much. Summer holidays in New Jersey are occasions marked with fun, family, food and festivals. While people gather to barbeque, play games, and enjoy the sun and sand, consuming too much alcohol and then getting behind the wheel can be a deadly risk.
