Unfortunately, no, the police are not required to read you your rights (also known as a Miranda Warning) when they pull you over.
The Miranda Warning only comes into play when you’ve been taken into custody, but even then, a failure to properly Mirandize you doesn’t automatically mean your case will be thrown out.
If police procedures did not meet the standards of the State of New Jersey, it is possible to raise these elements as part of your defense.
There are many avenues to explore when fighting back against a DUI charge in New Jersey, and your best strategy is to consult a qualified, experienced DUI/DWI attorney who can properly evaluate the circumstances of your case and help you build a strong defense.
