The Alcotest 7110 in New Jersey DWI/DUI

The Breathalyzer has been replaced with the Alcotest 7110 as New Jersey's approved breath test method. While there was significant controversy, and even delay in proceeding with many DWI convictions throughout New Jersey, the Supreme Court has ruled that results obtained from the Alcotest are admissible as evidence in a DWI/DUI case, as long as proper procedures were followed. When challenging breath test results, or the DUI/DWI charge itself, it is important to hire a New Jersey drunk driving defense attorney who understands the requirements and who can mount an aggressive defense on your behalf.
