    Yes, the issue was settled in Wnuck v. New Jersey Division of Motor Vehicles, 337 N.J. Super. 52 (App. Div. 2001). In that case, a non-resident driver who was convicted of DWI in New Jersey argued that he should not be subject to the insurance surcharge because he did not live in New Jersey. The Appellate Division reasoned that the purpose of the insurance surcharge is to penalize those drivers who drive drunk in New Jersey, thereby increasing the likelihood of motor vehicle accidents in New Jersey, which causes an increase in the insurance rates of all New Jersey motorists. Non-residents and residents alike who drive drunk increase the likelihood of accidents. Therefore, both are subject to the insurance surcharge.
