Observational Evidence in New Jersey DWI Cases

(732) 372-0820

The evidence used against defendants in DWI cases often seems overwhelming, but in reality, much of it can be effectively challenged. That includes both the chemical evidence obtained through breath, blood and urine and the evidence police obtain by observing you during your traffic stop and arrest.

Types Of DWI Evidence In New Jersey

Blowing into breath test

When police make DWI arrests, they gather two kinds of evidence against suspected drunk drivers: chemical and observational.

Chemical evidence consists of the results of breath, blood and urine tests. This is the evidence prosecutors tend to rely on the most, as it has the appearance of scientific certainty.

The other type of evidence is observational evidence. This is the evidence police gather from observing your behavior, speech, appearance and the results of your field sobriety tests. The most significant aspect of observational evidence is the field sobriety testing
