All law enforcement departments in the State of New Jersey employ the usage of the Alcotest 7110 in order to obtain breath samples of those placed under arrest for suspicion of Driving While Intoxicated. The BAC; or breath test result obtained from the Alcotest 7110 as administered in all DWI matters in the State of New Jersey will be used as evidence against you by the Prosecution in your case; which the Court will attempt to resolve within 60 days of the date of your arrest. Readings of a .08% BAC or higher will result in what is referred to as a per se violation for DUI, and will automatically trigger the various penalties discussed above as set forth in 39:4-50, if admitted successfully into evidence by the Prosecutor. Regardless of the readings in each individual case, however, the State will also seek to introduce each defendant’s performance on the Standard Field Sobriety Tests (S.F.S.T.’s) administered by the officer as both probable causes for the arrest and evidence of guilt against you.

More About Hamilton Township
Hamilton Township is a township in Atlantic County, New Jersey with a total population of nearly 24,000 residents distributed over 113 square miles. This actually makes Hamilton Township the largest municipality (land area) in the State of New Jersey. Mays Landing, the county seat on Atlantic County is actually located within Hamilton Township. Although it’s immense size, the township is largely undeveloped because the western three-quarters of the municipality is protected by the New Jersey Pinelands Commission.

Hamilton Township was originally founded in the 1700’s as a shipbuilding community along the Egg Harbor River and its tributaries, which run through it.
