Mount Holly, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/05/2018 -- Jason C. Pollack, P.C. — a trusted DUI attorney practicing in Gloucester County — recently held a DUI/DWI seminar at the Tavistock Country Club in Haddonfield, NJ. The seminar took place on Nov. 6, 2018, from 4 pm to 6:15 pm.
This evening program addressed the effects of Alcotest 9510, marijuana legalization, and Drug Recognition Evaluators (DREs) on the future of New Jersey DUIs. It was approved by the Board of Continuing Legal Education of the Supreme Court of New Jersey for 2.4 hours of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit. The program cost $60 for Camden County Bar Association members, $90 for non-members, and $15 for paralegals and legal secretaries. Law students could attend for free.
During this seminar, Pollack addressed current events surrounding the Alcotest 9510. This breathalyzer device is commonly used in New Jersey, yet its validity has come under fire. Flaws in the Alcotest's source code may lead to calibration issues and incorrect breath test results that lead to false positives. The Supreme Court of New Jersey has ruled that incorrectly calibrated Alcotest 9510 devices could have impacted as many as 20,000 New Jersey DUI/DWI convictions.
The legalization of marijuana in New Jersey could also lead to changes in the field of DUI and DWI. There is no breath test to determine if a driver is under the influence of marijuana, so New Jersey law enforcement must increasingly rely on Drug Recognition Evaluators (DREs).
A DRE will perform a 12-step test to decide if a driver is under the influence of drugs. This test is highly subjective, however, and seminar attendees learned how to challenge DRE opinions during a mock cross-examination.
