Field Sobriety Tests - What You Need to Know
Call a Skilled Rochester DWI Defense Attorney
Field sobriety tests are a common way for police officers to determine
the sobriety of a suspected intoxicated individual. These tests are often
performed under conditions that are not always conducive to obtaining
proper evidence, which means that the results of field sobriety tests
are not always accurate.
I am Attorney Christopher K. Rodeman, and I understand the ramifications
that can come from having your driver's license suspended or being
charged with a
DWI after a failed field sobriety test. As such, I am committed to working
with you to protect your future and defend your rights and driving privileges.

Types of Standard Field Sobriety Tests
Numerous tests are used as a part of the Standard Field Sobriety Tests.
These tests can include, but are not limited to:
Walk-and-turn test: This test is used to determine stability and balance. If the individual
wavers, it could be seen as a sign of intoxication.
One-leg test: Also used as a stability test, any faltering or wavering on the leg test
could be seen as intoxication.
Horizontal gaze nystagmus: Usually, an officer has a suspect follow his / her pen or other object
with their eyes, without moving their head. The officer is looking for
a slight "bounce" of the eye while following the moving object.

Although it may seem frustrating, there are actually numerous defenses
that could be used after an arrest for a failed field sobriety test. When
you work with my firm, I will determine if there are any underlying causes
of stress, medical conditions, or other circumstances that could have
caused you to fail the test. Additionally, I will review all evidence
that led to the arrest, including why you were stopped by the arresting
office, all dashboard camera videos, and all police reports in order to
build a strong defense on your behalf.
You can be confident that no stone will be left unturned when you work
with my team after a DWI arrest for a failed field sobriety test.
