Cape May City DWI Lawyer

John Tumelty, Criminal Lawyer & Former Prosecutor

Cape May City is a busy municipal court during the summer and fall months. With all of the shopping, restaurants, and Victorian history, Cape May City stays pretty busy all year-round, especially on weekends. The Cape May City Police Department makes several arrests each year for DWI offenses.

A lot of people drive into Cape May City at night for the restaurants, boardwalk, & liquor establishments. Unfortunately, there is only one bridge into and out of Cape May. The Cape May City police are very active in patrolling the streets that lead to the bridge. Typically, Cape May police stop a vehicle leaving the city late at night. If the police officer smells alcohol on the driver’s breath, he will order the driver out of the car to perform field sobriety tests. This frequently results in an arrest for DWI.
