Don’t Make Critical DWI Mistakes

If you get pulled over and arrested on DWI charges in New Jersey, it is very important to know exactly how you should proceed. Many people make mistakes that just compound the problem. You must know what issues to avoid.

Stay Off Social Media

For instance, people often talk about the DWI case on social media sites like Facebook and Instagram. These sites make information available to the public, and they can be used as evidence in your case. Avoid talking about any legal issues on social media until your case has been resolved.

Driving On A Suspended License

Another common mistake people make is getting back on the road, even with a suspended license. In New Jersey, you could face three months to a year without a license for merely a first offense. Even just refusing to take the breath test gives you at least seven months without a license. If you get caught driving without it, you can face additional penalties.

Not Hiring An Attorney

You may feel tempted to go to court alone. Perhaps you are convinced of your own innocence, and you think it will be easy to get the charges dropped.
