The Serious Impact of Refusing a Breathalyzer Test in Hudson County, NJ
When drivers fail to submit their breath samples for analysis through the Breathalyzer test upon police request, law enforcement officials usually charge suspects with offenses under N.J.S.A. 39:4-50.2 titled “Consent to Taking of Samples Deemed Given; Refusal.” However, an officer can still prove intoxication through the Field Sobriety Tests or general observations he/she might make about the suspect during arrest. Thus, refusal charges typically come together with a DWI Compliant which translates into harsh consequences when convicted.
At Spodek Law Group, we have seen many cases where refusing a breathalyzer resulted in significantly elevated fines and severe penalties such as license suspensions.
What Kind Of Action Is Considered A Refusal?
It is quite challenging to determine what constitutes a refusal due to its low threshold within the court’s standard requirements. Any statement substantially short of an unambiguous agreement by drivers indicating willingness to take a breath sample requested by an officer counts as refusal under the states’ traffic laws. Even without using explicit language or taking no action towards submission to the request can all point towards refusal allegations.
The Severity Of Penalties For Defying Police Directives In Hudson County
Just like DWI violations, the punishment for failing to provide a breath sample in Hudson County heavily depends on past similar offenses committed by the offender. Thus, first-time violators get their licenses suspended for at least seven months but not exceeding one year. Expectedly, fines range between $450 and $1,000 and mandatory attendance to the Intensive Drivers Resource Center for twelve hours installation of an ignition interlock device.
Second offense attracts penalties such as two years suspension of driver’s license, running between $700 and $1,300, undergo attendance in an intensive resource center program that lasts fourty-eight hours plus installation of IGNITION INTERLOCK DEVICE.
For subsequent offences (third or relentless claims), authorities deny drivers licenses up to ten years; alongside scheduled compulsory presentations to attend Intensive Drivers Resource Centers with a fine amounting to $1,300. We recommend individuals charged with refusal seek assistance from our attorneys as school areas have more severe consequences.
