Most of the major highways are patrolled by New Jersey State Troopers which largely contribute to the drunk driving tickets that are written by the local Linden Police Department. The following roadways or major DWI stop points in Linden New Jersey:
- New Jersey Turnpike (Interstate 95)

Linden New Jersey DWI & Refusal Attorneys
After being charged for DWI, many things are confusing and unsure. However, one thing that is for sure is that the state will prosecute your drunk driving charges to the fullest extent allowed under the law. This is because New Jersey has some of the toughest DUI laws in the country which includes absolutely no plea bargaining, no trial by jury, mandatory loss of license, installation of an interlock device, and thousands in fines. To make matters worse, courts are normally very aggressive in trying to resolve these cases as quick as possible which puts a lot of pressure on the defendant to construct a proper defense in time. Without the help of an experienced DWI defense attorney it is very easy to get lost trying to navigate the court system by yourself and nearly impossible to beat a DWI charge on your own.
