One of the biggest party nights of the year is this evening. Not surprisingly, law enforcement will be out in full force to apprehend suspected drunk drivers. The Monmouth County DWI Task Force is going to conduct a roadblock/checkpoint for this purpose. The location of the checkpoint is Highway 36 Westbound and shall run from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m.
Roadblock cases are not uncommon in our New Jersey DWI defense practice. These activities do yield arrests, particularly, as the checkpoints are conducted at high incident locations. If an individual finds themselves in the unfortunate position of being arrested at a DWI roadblock, all is not lost. We find these types of cases to be conducive to defense.
