Earlier this month, a New Jersey woman was arrested and charged after her car ended up on train tracks in Weehawken. The incident took place at around 3 a.m. when Port Authority Police received a phone call about a car stopped on the light rail tracks near the Lincoln Tunnel. When police arrived at the scene, they gave the 37-year-old woman an alcohol test through a Breathalyzer test, and she failed. She was then charged with DWI and reckless driving. The car was impounded, and New Jersey transit deemed the tracks safe.
Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is an offense committed when a driver operates a motor vehicle after the consumption of alcohol or drugs. An increased alcohol level in the driver’s blood significantly increases the risk of the driver committing errors in judgment and also increases a driver’s reaction time. In New Jersey, just as in other U.S. states, drunk driving is a primary cause of motor vehicle-related fatalities.
