Clifton NJ Refusal to Submit to a Breath Test Lawyers
DWI Defense Attorneys in Passaic County, New Jersey
New Jersey has enacted implied consent law. This means, under New Jersey law, any person who operates a motor vehicle on any road, street or highway in New Jersey automatically provides his/her consent to the taking of samples of his/her breath for the purpose of submitting to chemical tests to determine the content of alcohol in his/her or her blood.
If you refuse to submit to a breathalyzer test, you will be charged for your refusal. You may also be charged with a DWI (which is a separate offense). You may be charged and convicted for DUI without evidence of being under the influence of a breathalyzer.
