Breath Test Refusal
The implied consent law of New Jersey means that you may not refuse a breath test if there is reason to believe that you were consuming alcohol and are now operating a vehicle. Refusing to submit to a breath test creates harsh consequences in New Jersey, with a first offense of breath test refusal resulting in a minimum license revocation of seven months. Drivers who are guilty of refusing a breath test can be subject to harsher penalties than those convicted of a DWI with a BAC reading of 0.10% or more.
If you were stopped under suspicion of drunk driving, a police officer must have enough reason to administer a breath test. Without any solid probable cause, your charges should not turn into a conviction.
