DUI Instructions Must Be Translated, Rules New Jersey Court
Published on 07/16/2010 -
Non-English speaking drivers must be read, among other information, the consequences of not consenting to a breathalyzer test. The statements do not necessarily have to be understood, but they must be read in the appropriate language.
Opponents of the law claim that it gives immunity to any drunk driver who speaks a language that police officers cannot understand or translate.
State law enforcement officials have been using computerized software that gives the accused DUI statements in writing and audio formats.
No other state has such a requirement although many have made efforts to provide computer or print translations of DUI rules and regulations.
