'Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over' in full force until Jan. 2

The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign in New Jersey is an effort aimed to decrease loss of life due to drunk drivers. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an average of 25 individuals across the country perishes each day in drunk driving accidents throughout the month of Dec. each year.

Insurance fraud allegations leveled against New Jersey couple

Serious criminal charges can be brought against an individual if he or she is accused of having engaged in a fraud scheme. If a person is convicted of fraud-related charges, he or she can be given major criminal punishments. Such punishments can have a variety of significant impacts on an individual. Thus, being accused of having committing fraud crimes can be a very serious allegation for an individual to face.

Penalties for first-time DUI conviction could become more severe

Most individuals in New Jersey will never face charges of murder, robbery or similar criminal charges that could result in serious time behind bars. However, a criminal charge that can result in time behind bars and that most individuals are susceptible to is drunk driving charges. Driving under the influence in New Jersey is a crime with serious penalties that can happen to anyone. Unfortunately, one glass of wine too many can mean thousands of dollars in fines and other consequences.

Adolescent brains not capable of adult reasoning

Sometimes teenagers do dumb things. Sometimes they even do awful things. It is easy from the perspective of an adult to be baffled by acts of indiscretion on behalf of teenagers. However, it is very important to remain cognizant that teenagers and adults have different brains. Therefore, an adult's judgment and thought processes are markedly different than that of a teenager's in New Jersey.
