Under the state law of New Jersey, municipalities are permitted to create and enact local rules and regulations intended to help self-govern a specific municipality. These rules and regulations are referred to as ordinances. Some examples of local ordinance violations are:
– Public Intoxication
– Underage drinking
– Open alcohol beverage while driving
– Domestic Alterations
– Disorderly Conduct
