Facing a DUI Due to a Failed Field Sobriety Test?
Learn Your Options: Speak with Our Santa Clarita DUI Defense Attorneys
Field sobriety tests are conducted by law enforcement officials who suspect
a driver of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. These tests
are designed to determine the driver's ability to complete standard actions.
There are three commonly used standardized tests for sobriety:
- Horizontal gaze nystagmus (HGN)
- One-leg stand
These tests are used to help determine whether an individual is intoxicated,
and can lead to further chemical testing, either with a
blood test, to measure their blood alcohol content (BAC). If you fail these tests,
you may be arrested. Field sobriety testing is not an exact science, and
can easily lead to unfair arrests and unwarranted DUI charges.
