Know the components of a field sobriety test

A police officer who stops you for the suspicion of drunk driving will have to try to ascertain if you are actually impaired. This can be rather complicated because some of the testing that must be done is subjective. Field sobriety tests can fall under this subjective label because the results are based solely on the interpretation of the results as noted by the officer.

Defense options in drunk driving cases are numerous

In our previous blog post, we discussed the fact that Breathalyzers must be calibrated in order to produce accurate results. If the person who is using the device doesn't calibrate it properly, the results could read much higher or lower than the sample given. We know that you might have some questions about how to determine if the device is calibrated. We can help you explore whether this is a possible defense strategy you might opt to use in your case.

What you should know about Breathalyzers

When a police officer asks someone to submit to a breath test to determine his or her blood alcohol concentration, the test is carried out on a breath testing device commonly called a Breathalyzer. Courts accept the results of this test as evidence of a person's BAC, but the police department has to show that the machine can produce results that are reliable.

What is a route restricted license?

A route restricted license allows someone whose license has been suspended to drive to and from his or her place of education, education, Alcohol and Drug Safety Action Program classes or a court ordered drug program. It is only for those who have a non-commercial license and it is for the length of the driver's license suspension.
