Field sobriety tests are tools that officers use to help them determine whether or not you’re under the influence. That’s the stated definition of that. The reality is they are just roadside agility tests that officers are going to have you do so they can say you didn’t do them right.
Then they can say, “Now, I’ve developed the probable cause to say that you are under the influence of alcohol,” and arrest you. The best way to deal with field sobriety tests is don’t do them at all. There are no laws that require anyone to perform field sobriety test, whatsoever. That’s the bottom line. If you’ve been arrested for DUI, give me a call, so we can examine everything about the case, including the field sobriety test, to see whether or not the officer did everything correctly, whether or not there’s any errors and figure out what’s the best defense to defend your particular situation.
