Lacey Township, including Forked River and Lanoka Harbor, issues a significant number of Ocean County DWI tickets each year. If you or a loved one has been pulled over and then failed or refused to submit to a Standardized Field Sobriety Test or Alcotest issued by a Lacey or NJ state police officer, then you should understand that a DWI ticket in New Jersey is a serious and complicated matter. It is important that you understand the penalties and consequences in order to put yourself in the best position to beat the charges that you face. New Jersey has among the strictest DWI and DUI laws in the nation. Contributing factors to the severity of NJ DWI laws include
1) That the state does not offer any plea-bargaining for DWI charges;
2) If convicted, you will lose your license for a period of time and/or be forced to install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle, even for a first-time offender; and
3) You can face additional mandatory penalties such as community service, jail time, and mandatory drunk driving classes through the IDRC.
