• In New Jersey, they issue you a separate moving violation for refusing the breathalyzer test.
  • With a refusal you’re talking about a civil standard of preponderance of the evidence; much easier to prove for the state.
  • If you refuse, it is treated similarly to a first offense for driving while intoxicated or DUI.
  • You’re facing a 7 month license suspension, time in the Intoxicated Driver Resource Center, a mandatory $500 fine, and the potential of jail time.
