The answer to that varies across the states. New Jersey will notify your home state, but what happens from there is up to their laws.
Some states will suspend your license until New Jersey’s period of suspension is over, while others won’t apply any penalties.
One element that out of state residents sometimes benefit from when they get a DWI in New Jersey is that the charge isn’t considered criminal in nature here.
Many states just don’t have the resources to enforce out of state traffic violations, though DUI/DWI may be a misdemeanor or even a felony when it happens in that state.
If you’ve been arrested for DWI while visiting New Jersey, it’s very important that you find qualified, experienced help from a New Jersey DWI defense attorney.
The team at Reisig & Associates can protect your rights even when you’re at home in another state, and work closely with you to ensure your case is handled with all due care.
