No, the police aren’t required to read you your Miranda warnings as part of a traffic stop.
Further, the police have no obligation to allow you to speak to counsel prior to administering a breath test to you, because under the law, your acceptance of a driver’s license means you have waived your right to refuse a breath test when you are suspected of driving drunk.
There can be Miranda issues with DWI cases, but it isn’t as cut and dried as many expect it should be.
An experienced DWI attorney in New Jersey can properly evaluate the events of your DWI arrest and build a strong case in your defense.
Every case has avenues on which to challenge the evidence that prosecutors have compiled against you.
