Voorhees, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/15/2016 -- Statistics show that holidays, no matter the season, are the most likely time for individuals to drive while intoxicated. As the November-December stretch features Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year's all within a one-month span, winter has garnered the unfortunate reputation for being the time of year with the most DUIs and DWIs – as well as the season with the most sobriety checkpoints, designed to stop intoxicated drivers before they can cause dangerous accidents. For those accused of driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) during a sobriety check roadblock in the state of New Jersey this winter, Charles Block, criminal lawyer in Haddonfield, NJ, is available to help mount a thorough defense to defend clients' rights and limit the punitive damage done.
During a roadblock, police have the right to stop drivers, ask for a license and proof of registration, peer into the car, and ask the driver basic questions to gauge their responsiveness, comprehension and overall demeanor, in order to make a determination of sobriety. Should an individual be stopped and accused of driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated, they are under no obligation to speak to the police, confess to their guilt, or even let the authorities search their car (without probable cause to do so).
It can be difficult to determine whether or not an officer of the law had the right to search a car, or if an individual felt like they were legally required to answer questions – and not informed of their ability not to do so after arrest. Any of these factors and more can be grounds for the dismissal of a DUI or DWI case, or contribute to a lessening of charges. Other events that a qualified, experienced attorney will be able to uncover through careful investigation and interviews with their client can also affect the outcome of the case.
