Don't underestimate the importance of knowing the local laws in your town. When you violate a local law you will often be subject to two sets of penalties: those provided by the state and those provided under the local law. It is also important to know the local laws in your town because certain actions may not carry penalties in a neighboring town, but you could be subject to penalties in your town for committing the same act.

Let's take a quick look at the penalties for underage drinking in Seaside Heights.

If you are drinking on a premise that is licensed to sell alcohol, but you are underage, you could be subject to:

  • $100 to $1250 in fines
  • Jail or community service up to 90 days

If you are drinking on private property like a friend's house or even your own house you could be subject to:

  • $250 fine for a first offense
  • $350 fine for a subsequent offense
  • Suspend driving privileges for 6 months

Indecent Exposure or Nudity is a form of conduct that young people are often penalized for during the summer months. It is important to know these laws because you may think you are playing a practical joke with your friends, but really you could be subject to real life penalties. Under the local law in Sea Side Heights, girls must make sure their chests are fully covered, and cannot wear tops that simulate a naked chest, even if they are really covered up. The same rule applies to the lower regions of both boys and girls. Penalties for violating these rules include:

  • $100 to $1250 in fines
  • Prison or community service up to 90 days.

In addition to Indecent Exposure and Underage Drinking, there are many other common forms of illegal conduct that young people tend to engage in during the summer months. View the entire Sea Side Heights General Code.
