It seems that the Monmouth County DWI Task Force has an affinity for Middletown NJ. The organization has scheduled another DWI checkpoint in the municipality. This is at least the second such roadblock in the municipality. We can only assume that the prior roadblock proved successful insofar as the same location has been selected in Monmouth County.
The checkpoint is scheduled for Friday night through Saturday morning. The DWI detail is intended to detect drivers who are operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and shall run from 11:00 p.m. through 3:00 a.m. on Route 35 North. Representatives of the Task Force and the Middletown Police shall test individuals in the parking lot of Hudson City Savings Bank.
A prerequisite to conducting a valid roadblock in NJ is statistical data demonstrating that the location selected has a high incident of driving while intoxicated. The fact that this particular location has been selected a second time manifests that Route 35 North is ripe for DWI violations. This does not come as a shock in view of the significant number of DWI and refusal cases which our NJ DWI Defense Attorneys handle in Middletown.
