East Brunswick Police pull over a lot of cars for speeding, tailgating and other traffic tickets in East Brunswick Township. Many of these lead to arrests for DUI. Police officer are trained to check the driver of each of these violations for any trace that the driver may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If the police officer has reasonable suspicion that the driver may be intoxicated, he or she may detain the driver so sobriety tests can be conducted.

Standard field sobriety tests that are commonly given to DWI suspects include the “walk and turn test,” the “one-leg stand,” and the horizontal gaze nystagmus test. It is important to know that the HGN test is not admissible to prove intoxication at trial, but may be admitted to show that the officer had probable cause to make the arrest. This becomes important when the results of the breath test (Alcotest) are being challenged. If the police did not have probable cause to arrest you, then the results of the breath test can be challenged.

East Brunswick has its own Municipal Court, located in central Middlesex County, New Jersey.

There are other tests that police administer to test whether the suspect is driving while intoxicated in New Jersey. These include divided attention tests and rote memory tests such as asking the suspect their social security number and to recite the alphabet. All of these tests have weaknesses, which an experienced attorney can challenge. If you have been charged with a DWI East Brunswick, you should contact an East Brunswick DWI lawyer before attending court to discuss what your rights are and what the potential penalties may be.
