Field Sobriety Tests

Posted on:3/10/2013
A set of Standardized Field Sobriety Tests was developed by the NHTSA based upon measured relationships between performance on various tasks and measured blood alcohol level.


The three tests are: horizontal gaze nystagmus - a method for observing the irregularities in pupillary motion of the eye tracking a stimulus moving horizontally across a field of view; walk and turn which determines the ability of an individual to remember directions, walk a straight line and execute a turn in place; and one leg stand which determines the ability of an individual to count in a prescribed manner while maintaining balance on one foot.

 

If you have been pulled over for DUI, the first thing the police officer will ask you to do is to take the field sobriety tests. The officer will inform you that you must take the field sobriety test so he can determine if you are driving under the influence. You have the legal right to refuse the field sobriety test. If you have been arrested for DUI because you have failed the field sobriety test, contact an experienced DUI attorney.

 

If you agree to take the field sobriety test, you will only make things easier for the officer. Remember, if an officer has stopped you for DUI, he has probably made up his mind to arrest you. The field sobriety tests are designed to make you fail. An experienced DUI attorney can challenge the accuracy of the field sobriety test results.
