The Alcotest 7110 MK III breath test instrument, which uses both infrared analysis and electrochemical analysis as a dual system of chemical breath testing, is scientifically reliable and accurate. Hence, chemical breath test readings produced by the 7110 may be introduced into evidence in a prosecution for violation of N.J.S.A. 39:4-50, N.J.S.A. 12:7-46 without the need for the state to produce expert witnesses in each and every case. However, a large and unacceptable number of persons were charged with refusal that made an attempt to deliver a breath sample. Therefore, no person who delivers a breath sample of at least .5 liters on the Alcotest 7110 MK III may be charged with refusal pursuant to N.J.S.A. 39:4-50.4(a). Breathalyzer machines are not being timely inspected. Machines are not being repaired in Middlesex County.
