Doesn’t New Jersey’s Implied Consent law violate the Fifth Amendment?

New Jersey’s Implied Consent Law (N.J.S.A. 39:4-50.2) applies to operating a motor vehicle on public or quasi-public land in the state, and driving is not a constitutionally protected act in the United States.

As such, and because that implied consent can be revoked by the driver at the time of an arrest by refusing to submit to a breath test, Implied Consent is considered to meet constitutional muster and not violate the Fifth Amendment protection against self-incrimination.
