It is often a surprise when someone learns that West Milford is one of the busier municipalities in Passaic County for DWI offenses. A considerable number of DUI charges are written in the township every year with 105 issued over the twelve months ending June 2015. This is an extremely high amount of individuals charged given that there are no major highways in this town and it ranks last (i.e. 16th) in population density in the county. All of this should serve as signal enough to you that this is a jurisdiction that is aggressive apprehending drunk drivers. If you are someone who was arrested in these efforts, you will have to hire an able DWI attorney in order to avoid the penalties that apply under N.J.S.A. 39:4-50.
