DUI Field Sobriety Tests. Accurate?

Inaccuracy of Field Sobriety Tests

You were pulled over for drunk driving and submitted to a field sobriety test. The DUI standardized test that was used to gauge your alcohol level is viewed as an inaccurate measurement of your ability drive. It is crucial that you hire a Rancho Cucamonga DUI lawyer who can easily refute the results of the administered test and successfully dismiss the charges against you for lack of evidence.

Agencies Disagreeing With Use of Field Sobriety Tests

Research has demonstrated that no studies have successfully linked the results of a standardized field sobriety test (SFST) to driving impairment of an individual arrested for a DUI. National agencies such as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the United States Department of Transportation have not proven or admitted to the reliability indicators of these tests with respect to an individual's level of impaired driving.

Even certain police agencies nationwide agree that the majority of these standardized field sobriety tests fail to accurately assess driving impairment.

Your attorney will review the specific facts of your DUI case to determine whether he can prepare a defense refuting the accuracy of the SFST that was administered prior to your DUI arrest.
