New Jersey DWI Right to Remain Silent
“You have the right to remain silent.”
We have all heard this. That is why it is shocking why not enough people use this right.
If you are stopped for a DWI or any other investigation for that matter, you have the legal right to keep quiet. No matter how aggressive the office is and how innocent the question sounds, you can choose to remain silent.

In the video below, the law professor and the police officer both agree that it is in your best interests to stay quiet.
