Blood alcohol tests: Your rights and responsibilities

There are several things that happen when a law enforcement officer has reason to believe that you are driving after you have been drinking. In most cases, a traffic stop is initiated. That leads to specific tests that can be used to determine if you are intoxicated. You might be given a field sobriety test. You might also be asked to take a breath test or blood test to determine your blood alcohol concentration. When it comes to those tests, there are several points you should know.

Breath tests accuracy might be used in your DUI defense

When you are arrested for drunk driving, your defense plan has to start right away. If you are actually intoxicated, it can be difficult to come up with a plan right then. Still, the actions that you take can have a profound impact on your defense options down the road. One of the important things you have to do is to make notes about some points relating to the arrest.

Drugs and driving don't mix

When you operate a motor vehicle, you need to be aware of what is happening on the roadways around your vehicle. You also need to be able to react appropriately when there is an obstacle or something else that requires you to take action. Using drugs before you drive carries the possibility that you won't be able to react in a safe manner. That is the reason why New Jersey and other states have made driving under the influence of drugs an illegal act.

No driver's license because of DUI, no engineer job

A man who has had multiple DUI convictions and a suspended driver's license will no longer be able to operate a train. The man worked for the New Jersey Transit as a train engineer; however, he is not working as an engineer any longer. His driver's license was suspended for 10 years because of his repeat DWI violations.
