Refusal Lawyer in Wall Township

Posted by Carmine R. Villani | Jun 19, 2016 | 0 Comments

Refusal

Refusal charges are also common in Wall Township. Refusal charges can be written when the alleged intoxicated motorist refuses to submit to a breath test or a blood test to determine their Blood Alcohol Content (BAC). There is a process that all Wall Township Police Officers must follow and is contained on the Division of Motor VehiclesStandard Statement. The officer must read you your rights and the law contained thereon, and ask if you will submit to a BAC test. If you refuse, the officer is then required to read an additional legal warning and ask once more. If you refuse the second time, you will be charged with a refusal. If convicted of the refusal, you may face similar penalties to those of actual DWI. However, in addition to the DWI penlties you will also be ordered to install an Ignition Interlock Device on your motor vehicle. Costs with Ignition Interlock Devices can run high as they require fees for installation, rental, monthly reporting, and removal.  These devices will not allow you to turn on your automobile unless the device determines that there is no alcohol in your system. If the refusal violation occurs in a designated school zone, the fines and penalties can be doubled and are more severe. To receive a school zone violation, school does not have to be in session. In fact, you may be written for a school zone violation at 2:00 am when school children are not present at all.
