    Default Can You Be Required to Take Field Sobriety Tests in New Jersey

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: NJ

    Are field sobriety tests voluntary in New Jersey? If so could you please direct me to the legal source that states this? Many thanks!

    Default Re: Field Sobriety Tests in New Jersey

    Yes

    but refusal doesn’t mean you’ll simply walk away from the contact. If the cop has a reasonable suspicion you are intoxicated, they can arrest you and transport you to the police station where a breathalyzer may be administered. You do not have a right to refuse a breathalyzer test.
