Driving While Intoxicated in New Jersey carries devastating penalties. However, when your DWI offense occurs within a School Zone, the penalties are even more harsher. An individual, who is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, cannot operate his or her vehicle within 1,000 feet of school property. What qualifies as school property includes more than just the actual school. Technically, any property owned, leased or used by the school district can qualify. If convicted, you face heavy fines, license suspension, insurance and DMV surcharges and other ancillary effects. If you or someone you love have been charged with Driving While Intoxicated, contact the DWI Attorneys at Proetta, Oliver & Fay.
