DWI Observation Case | What is It?
I am often asked, as a New Jersey DUI lawyer, what an observation case is in a DWI. A police officer will observe you driving bad or may smell alcohol in the car. You could be viewed with bloodshot eyes or slurred speech. And you end up failing the field sobriety tests given by the officer. If you’ve been charged with a DWI due to police observation, you need to contact an experienced New Jersey attorney right away.

DWI Observation Case | Video Evidence
Many times, as a New Jersey DUI lawyer, I am often asked about DWI observation videos on police cars. An observation video will show the interaction between the police officer and my client. Field sobriety tests are viewable, which can help defend clients.
There are a lot of cases where there is a video from the police car. It is a camera mounted right behind the windshield, and you can see everything. You see the way the client was driving before they got pulled over; all the way to the field sobriety test. What you see may differ from the narration by the police officer.
Very often, there is audio that accompanies the video. You can hear the officer. You can hear the responses of the client. In many cases, you can see it mirrors more closely what clients are saying than what the police reports say.
