East Brunswick issued over 280 DWI complaints between 2011 and April 2012, ranking second in Middlesex County to Woodbridge Township. The high number of driving while intoxicated offenses is not only attributable to the major roadways that pass through East Brunswick NJ but also to the fact that the town maintains its own DWI Enforcement Team. The sole purpose of this team is to identifying and apprehending drunk drivers.
Penalties for a DWI or refusal convictions are extremely severe. At a bare minimum, you are facing a $1,000 surcharge per year for three years, increased insurance rates, and numerous fines and assessments. For a first offense, there is a three month to one year license suspension and up to 30 days. A second offense will result in a mandatory 2-90 day period of incarceration and a mandatory two year license suspension. Third offense penalties are even more severe: at least 180 days in jail and a mandatory ten year license suspension.
