FORKED RIVER, N.J. - Aug. 10, 2023 - PRLog -- Summer in New Jersey is often spent outdoors and on the move. Roads are overly congested with residents and visitors alike heading to the Shore, a BBQ, or vacation. Summertime travel plans often coincide with extra police patrols and targeted enforcement efforts by officers. "Unfortunately, this can lead to undeserved traffic tickets or worse, a DWI charge in municipal court," stated Brian R. Clancy, Esq, of Dasti & Staiger.

In New Jersey, a DWI is considered a significant violation. A first offense DWI can carry a loss of license depending on one's blood alcohol content (BAC). If a driver blows a .15 or above, a loss of license for four to six months will be imposed at the time of sentencing. In the state of New Jersey, a driver with a BAC of .08 or below can still be charged with a DWI. Experts say it only takes 3 drinks (12 oz beer, 5 oz wine, or a shot of liquor) consumed in under an hour for a BAC to reach up to .08%.

According to the 2023 State of New Jersey Highway Safety Plan, "over the past 5 years (2016-2020), the months of May, July and August experienced higher-than-average crashes involving alcohol." Efforts to reduce driving under the influence in 2023 include high-visibility enforcement campaigns in targeted locations and on a sustained basis in some locations.

"Motorists faced with these situations benefit tremendously from the help of an experienced attorney to prevent years of expensive insurance premiums and points on their license," noted Clancy. "Do not agree to pay for tickets or appear in court without first consulting a knowledgeable attorney for advice."
