About Field Sobriety Tests

Law enforcement officers employ field sobriety tests to ascertain your level of intoxication or impairment should you fall under the suspicion that you have been operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.  These field sobriety tests consist of a number of techniques developed to analyze certain indicators of intoxication.  Test commonly administered include:

  • Ability to touch tip of nose with finger
  • Ability to count forwards and backwards
  • Balance while standing on one leg
  • Horizontal eye movement test
  • Walk-and-turn test

While these field tests are widely used by law enforcement officers, a skilled attorney can show that the results of these tests are inconclusive at best.  A number of factors can have a confounding influence on the results such as fatigue, nervousness, the terrain on which the test was administered, the weather, and countless other circumstances can make any conclusions drawn from field sobriety tests inconclusive.  Due to the fallibility of these tests, officers of the law employ breathalyzer tests and now blood tests in conjunction with these other field sobriety tests. Contact a Thousand Oaks DUI attorney if you stand accused of DUI charges and participated or refused to participate in a field sobriety test.
