How to fight NJ DUI Charges
“One of the ways the fight a DWI arrest in New Jersey is to challenge the DWI checkpoint. Many times police departments conduct DWI checkpoints in an attempt to make arrests and they must comply with certain rules and guidelines for those checkpoints to be valid. If not, these are essentially illegal traffic stops and the charges will be completely dismissed in court.”
In order for a DWI checkpoint to be considered valid it must fit the following criteria:
- Be published to the public beforehand
- Show prior history of DWI offenses in that area
- Be supervised properly by local law enforcement
- Must have been previously approved
If the DWI checkpoint does NOT fit the above criteria then it will be considered invalid which can help us fight your case.
