Breath Tests in New Jersey DWI Cases
In New Jersey, officers in DWI cases will administer a breath test to a driver suspected of driving while intoxicated to determine if they are over the legal limit of .08%. If a breath test result shows that a driver’s BAC is over .08%, the reading is admissible in court. The admissibility of this test is extremely important for you and for the prosecution since they must prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. It is important to note however that the results from the portable breath test that officers administer on the roadside are only used to determine whether probable cause exists for an arrest and are not admissible in court. Further if your BAC is above .10% or .15%, you may be subject to even more severe penalties including in ignition interlock device and a lengthy license suspension.
