Greetings Kenneth Vercammen,   
1. Roadside Field Sobriety Tests Require Articulable Suspension. State v. Bernokeits 423 NJ Super. 365 (App. Div. 2011)
The court holds that standard, roadside field sobriety testing does not require the police to have probable cause to arrest or to search, but rather may be undertaken on the basis of a reasonable articulable suspicion alone that defendant was driving while intoxicated.
2. Less Expensive Testing Thermometer is Sufficient with DWI. State v. Holland 423 NJ Super. 309 (App. Div. 2011)

The court holds that sufficient credible evidence supports the remand court's findings that the Control Company digital thermometer is comparable in all material respects to the Ertco- Hart digital thermometer previously used during the Alcotest calibration process, and that the Control Company certificate is facially valid and satisfies the requirements as a foundational document as required by State v. Chun, 194 N.J. 54, cert. denied, 129 S. Ct. 158 (2008).

4. April is National Donate Life Month- Organ Donation

While New Jersey Organ and Tissue Sharing Network (NJ Sharing Network) works to educate New Jersey residents year round about the critical need for more organ and tissue donors, the month of April, associated with renewal and spring, is also National Donate Life Month.  

Established in 2003, the month features local, regional and national educational activities designed to encourage Americans to become organ and tissue donors. We recommend all NJ citizens between 18 and 80 have a Living Will/ Advance Directive prepared. Select organ donation in your Living Will.

Nationally, more than 110,000 people wait for a life-saving transplant-close to 5,000 of them are here in New Jersey. For many, tragically, the gift will never be received. Nearly 6,000 people die a year - about 18 per day - awaiting the gift of life.

One of the most important life-saving decisions you can make is to become a registered donor. Say "yes" to donation on your New Jersey driver license or state ID when you first apply for and each time you renew. The words "Organ Donor" will appear on the front of your license and will be included in your computer record with the Motor Vehicle Commission. Not renewing anytime soon? You can register online today by visiting www.sharenj.org. NJ Sharing Network is a non-profit, federally designated organization responsible for the recovery and placement of donated organs and tissue for New Jersey residents in need of life-saving transplants. For information about donation and transplantation in NJ, contact us at 1-800-SHARE-NJ or info@sharenj.org
