ATLANTIC CITY, NJ--Driving over the speed limit and driving while intoxicated (DWI) are separate driving offenses – but if you combine the two, you may be looking at increased penalties. Certainly, the penalties will add up, since you can suffer the penalties for each offense. However, the penalties for DWI may be worse if you were speeding, and the penalties for speeding may be worse if you were drunk while speeding. If you were charged with any serious traffic offenses like driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, talk to an attorney right away. The Atlantic City DWI defense lawyers at The Law Offices of John J. Zarych represent those charged with DWI and other crimes in South Jersey.
