Toms River DWI/DUI Attorney
The Township of Toms River is a large township in Ocean County and the county seat of Ocean County. In 2006, Toms River was ranked as the 14th safest “city” in the United States. There are several major roadways in Toms River, which include the Garden State Parkway, U.S. Route 9, Route 35, Route 70 and County Road 571. The two most congested roads are Hooper Avenue and Route 37. Route 37 sees extra traffic from travelers to the Jersey Shore during the summertime.
The Toms River Police Department is aggressive in monitoring traffic on the major roadways, including motorists going to, and coming from, the Jersey Shore. The police conduct many car stops that result in numerous DWI tickets issued each year in Toms River. A DWI ticket in New Jersey is a traffic offense, not a criminal offense. However, the fines and penalties are substantial. They include a mandatory loss of license, potential jail time, potential installation of an ignition interlock device, community service, alcohol education classes, and mandatory fines. If you have been issued a DWI ticket in Toms River, you need an experienced and aggressive DUI defense attorney.
