The Morris County municipality of Hanover Township has a surprisingly high number of motorist charged with DUI. The town may rank in the bottom half in terms of residents at approximately 14,409 but you would not know it from the number of individuals issued a DWI offense annually. Well over one-hundred were arrested for DWI, DUI and Breath Test Refusal last year (i.e. July 2014-15) alone. The presence of high volume roadways like Interstate 287 and New Jersey Route 10 is undoubtedly a primary reason for the exceptionally robust filings in the township under N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 (“Driving while intoxicated”). A skilled Hanover DWI Lawyer is an absolute must for those interested in avoiding drunk driving penalties since there is no ability to plea bargain. Successfully defending the charge will come down to mounting a legitimate defense rather than political favor in the court. Your attorney will have to persuade the court that the offense is defective, otherwise, it is totally illegal to dismiss the charge.
