Standardized Field Sobriety Testing
The standardized field sobriety test (SFST) is not a perfect system and is not typically sufficient evidence to accuse someone of operating a vehicle intoxicated. However, it can create reasonable cause for a police officer, which requires the use of a blood alcohol test. Mistakes do occur despite training to conduct standardized field sobriety testing. You will have a strong case against DWI charges if law enforcement did not perform a field sobriety test the right way before arresting and charging you.
Drug-Related DUI Arrests
DUIs because of drugs have gone up in New Jersey. If you were arrested on suspicion of DUI, getting attorney with experience in drug recognition evaluation (DRE) is imperative to your argument.

Breath Test Refusal
It is illegal to turn down a breath test in NJ. If you do refuse to participate in the Alcotest®, you will be arrested and charged with refusal. Charges associated with refusal are in certain ways more punishing than charges that result from a DUI conviction.
Did an officer request that you take a a breath test without actually establishing probable cause? Police officers are not allowed to administer a breath test without making a real attempt to prove probable cause. Your charges might be defeated in court if the officer who administered the test was not attempting to look for probable cause.

A police officer in New Jersey can ask you certain questions that you are required to answer like your legal name and residence. But you don't need to answer other questions at a police DWI road block. You also have the right to politely turn down a request to search your car.
