NJ BREATH TEST REFUSAL
Defend Your Rights: Camden County Breath Test Refusal Defense Lawyers

Nevertheless, in requesting for a breath test, the police officer must have reasonable suspicion that you are driving while intoxicated.

The State Of New Jersey Implied Consent Law
When a police officer rightfully suspects you of drunk driving and pulls you over, the Breathalyzer test is given. The portable breath test (PBT) is administered on the roadside and is voluntary, meaning you have the option of accepting or refusing to take the test. Alternatively, at the police station, a breath test is given using an Alcotest 7110 device. New Jersey drivers must submit to this breath test at the police station since the implied consent law requires all drivers on New Jersey roads when arrested on suspicion of drunk driving to do so. N.J.S.A. 39:4-50.2 explains that:
a) Any person who operates a motor vehicle on any public road, street, or highway or quasi-public area in this State shall be deemed to have given his consent to taking samples of his breath to help determine alcohol content in their blood; provided that the samples are obtained in accordance with provisions contained within this act and under request of a police officer having reasonable grounds believing that such person has violated relevant laws.
e) No chemical test as provided under this section or specimen necessary for it may be taken forcibly and against physical resistance by the defendant. The police should, however, inform anyone they arrest about consequences related to refusal of submission to such a test; besides reading out standard statements prepared by chief administrators.
New Jersey’s Refusal To Submit To A Breath Test
Refusal charges involving consenting to a breath test can lead to revocation offenders’ driving licenses by municipal courts. N.J.S.A codifies refusal charges concerning submitting breath tests when requested under section 39:4-50.4a.; it provides as shown below:
(a) Municipal court revokes operator right to operate motor vehicles violating relevant laws upon arrest and refused submission for not less than seven months but not more than one year unless refusal was during second offense then two years or third henceforth ten years within such sections. If you need to challenge a refusal charge, call us immediately.
