Where does the police report future DWI checkpoints and can I refuse to take a soberity test?
I started working at night, and I am afraid about DWI checkpoints. My concern is that my eyes are really red and dry all the time, people always joke if I have smoke something and on the top of it I have an issue with my back that to perform some tests will make me failed. I was in a car accident and I have severe lower back and numbness in my legs, I also have a very heavy accent when I talk English. I am afriad that if I get stop a cop looking at my eyes and hearing me talk may suspect that i am drunk or high and then if he ask me to step out and do some physiscal tests may fail. How can I protect myself? Should I get a notice from the doctor showing my conditions I can get it from the eye doc and my orthopedic.

What penalties can I expect for an open container in public?
This was in Rockaway, although court is in Dover. This was not an open container in a car, but in public. Great error of judgment. What can I expect in court? This is my first offense, aside from speeding tickets. Also, what would be the consequences of FTA, aside from a warrant for arrest, which is to be expected? A friend told me I would be looking at anywhere from 30 to 120 days for FTA and had better show up or have it postponed if I can't make it to the appointed date. That sounds like a lot to me. It's the only thing that's made me nervous. I have no experience with this kind of thing. It is my first mandatory court appearance. Thank you.
The penalty for a first offense is $200. The statute NJSA 39:4-51b. If there is a mandatory Court appearance, you need...
