A DWI in Ocean Township and anywhere in the state of New Jersey requires that the state prove that the individual is operating his or her vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs and those alcohol or drugs deleteriously affected the individual’s ability to drive. The state must prove that beyond a reasonable doubt. Often times the state will use a combination of the standard field sobriety tests and the results of a breath test in order to attempt to prove that an individual was under the influence of alcohol or drugs when they were operating their vehicle.

One of the field sobriety tests that is used is called the horizontal gaze nystagmus test. This test, tests the smooth pursuit of a person’s eyes. The test is thought to help in the determination of whether a person was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. However, the New Jersey Appellate Division has ruled that this test is scientific in nature and not a test in which an officer can routinely administer unless that officer has very specific training and experience. Often times, an officer will need to have a special certification in horizontal gaze nystagmus testing in order for the results of the test to be admissible in a court proceeding. An Ocean Township DWI Lawyer should request the certification during the discovery period when handling a DWI in Ocean Township. This certification and training may be important in determining whether the officer should be permitted to testify about the results of the horizontal gaze nystagmus or HGH test.

If you or someone you know would like to speak with one of our Ocean Township DWI Lawyers call our law firm day or night. Our attorneys will take the time to speak with you and discuss all of your options. If a horizontal gaze nystagmus test was administered our attorneys will discuss the test and whether the test is likely to be admitted into evidence. Obviously, our attorneys will also address any other legal or factual issues related to the Ocean Township DWI matter. Call us today. We can help.
