Can I be prosecuted for DUI/DWI/Drunk Driving in Fort Lee, NJ,  if the Alcotest results fail or are inadmissible due to technical or other reasons?

The answer in Fort Lee, New Jersey is a clear yes. This is called an observation case as it will be based solely on the observations and opinions of the arresting officers. What few defendants know is that most Fort Lee, DUI/DWI/Drunk Driving arrests occur with a video running and that all of their movements, statements and actions are being recorded. The video is generally located on the dashboard of the police car that responds to the scene and can be aimed at the DUI/DWI/Drunk Driving suspect, whether he or she is on a sidewalk performing preliminary physical tests, or sitting in the back seat of the patrol car after an arrest. This video becomes part of a Fort Lee, NJ, prosecutors arsenal in an observation case.

The general observations of the arresting officer in a DUI/DWI/Drunk Driving arrest will also be an important part of the prosecution. These observations will include a DUI/DWI/Drunk Driving defendant’s ability to walk (whether unable to, falling, swaying, sagging or staggering); ability to stand (whether unable to, swaying, leaning for balance, etc.); speech (shouting, rambling, slobbering, incoherent, etc.); demeanor in general (including fighting, excited, hysterical, sleepy, crying, etc.); condition of eyes (including bloodshot, watery, drooping lids, etc.); condition of clothing (including mussed, dirty, vomited on, etc.); appearance of face (whether flushed or pale); and whether there is an odor of an alcoholic beverage on the DUI/DWI/Drunk Driving suspect’s breath.

For a SAMPLE OBSERVATION CHECKLIST used by NJ Police Departments in DUI/DWI/Drunk Driving arrests, see the attached link.


Do I have the right to refuse to take a DUI/DWI/Drunk Driving BREATH TEST, and what happens if I do refuse?

The answer in New Jersey is NO, you have no right to refuse to take the breath test. Whether you know it or not, New Jersey law provides that any person who operates a motor vehicle on any public road, street or highway or quasi-public area in this State is deemed to have given his consent to the taking of samples of his breath for an Alcotest or Breathalyzer test. Refusing the breath test carries serious penalties which generally parallel and are in addition to the penalties for DUI DWI Drunk Driving. Refusing or refusal of the breath test is a serious complication to a DUI DWI Drunk Driving arrest as the refusal can seriously increase the level of penalty. Even so, there are defenses in Refusing and Refusal cases in which the lawyers at Avery & Avery, Esqs., are highly experienced, enabling them to be of considerable help those charged with Refusing or Refusal of the Breath Test, and in minimizing the penalties for refusal.

Fort Lee, New Jersey, general information:

Fort Lee is named for General Charles Lee[17] after George Washington and his troops had camped at Mount Constitutionoverlooking Burdett's Landing, in defense of New York City. It was during Washington's retreat in November 1776 (beginning along a road which is now Main Street) that Thomas Paine composed his pamphlet, The American Crisis, which began with the recognized phrase, "These are the times that try men's souls". These events are recalled at Monument Park and Fort Lee Historic Park.

Fort Lee was formed by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 29, 1904, from the remaining portions ofRidgefield Township.[18][19] With the creation of Fort Lee, Ridgefield Township became defunct and was dissolved as of March 29, 1904.[20] The Fort Lee Police Department was formed under borough ordinance on August 9, 1904, and originally consisted of six marshals.[21]

At the turn of the 21st century, Fort Lee saw a large Korean migration which has converted much of the town into a largeKoreatown,[22] in that many traditional Korean stores and restaurants may be seen in Fort Lee, and the hangul letters of the Korean alphabet are as common as signs in English in parts of the downtown area. This Koreatown is centered in the adjacent town of Palisades Park.

The rapid increase of the Korean population has seen the decline of many other immigrant communities once centered in Fort Lee, notably the Greek and Italian communities, once quite large but now all but extinct. A sizable Russianimmigrant community has also sprung up in recent years, also attracted by the urban setting of Fort Lee.[citation needed]

Given its evolving cosmopolitan ambience[23] and adjacent proximity to Manhattan, Fort Lee has been called a sixth New York City borough,[24][25] although not the only claimant of this title amongst northern New Jersey's Hudson River Gold Coast communities.
