Consequences that can flow from a Union County DWI arrest and prosecution include: loss of your driver’s license, heavy fines, court costs and extensive administrative fees, probation, jail or state prison, vehicle impoundment or forfeiture, an ignition interlock device put on your car, etc. New Jersey treats Driving While Intoxicated (“DWI”) seriously.


Aside from the more just the legal consequences of dealing with the police, the court, and the New Jersey Department of Motor Vehicles (“DMV”), there are real world issues that often come from a DWI conviction. If you are a truck driver, you could lose your privilege to drive commercially for at least one year. A DWI conviction can cause your insurance rates to skyrocket; sometimes insurance companies will cancel your coverage altogether. There are other, DWI penalties, such as limitations on travel outside of the state or to other countries. A DWI conviction may bring community service and alcohol treatment programs that will involve you taking classes that you will pay for.
