Common reasons you may fail a field sobriety test

If you are ever pulled over for a DUI check in South Carolina, you may need to take a field sobriety test. There are many kinds of sobriety tests officers can use during DUI traffic stops. However, the most common tests are the one-leg stand, HGN (Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus), and walk-and-turn tests. You do not need to be intoxicated to fail a sobriety test. Failing these tests do not necessarily mean you are going to end up with a DUI conviction. There are other factors the courts use to determine guilt in a DUI case besides field sobriety test results. 

Could your job be in jeopardy following a DUI conviction?

A DUI conviction in South Carolina carries serious legal consequences, and it can also affect your life in other negative ways. For example, U.S. News recently reported about a police officer who lost his job due to a DUI while on the job. He was just released from jail on bond, not actually convicted of the DUI, but he was fired anyway.
