Bedminister may have one of the lowest population densities in Somerset County with 8,165 residents spread over 26.3 square miles but that does not translate into a municipality with limited DWI charges. The township is consistently one of the higher ranking communities for DUI offenses. The presence of two of New Jersey’s busiest roadways, Interstates 287 and 78, is certainly a major factor in the disproportionately high number of individuals charged with drunk driving. If you were stopped and arrested for violating N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 (“Driving while intoxicated”) in Bedminister, do not make the mistake of taking the offense too lightly. Failure to prepare an effective defense will result in penalties that always include a suspension of your license and thousands of dollars in fines, court assessments, surcharges and escalating insurance rates. The best tool at your disposal to combat the risks of these consequences is a skilled NJ DWI attorney.
