Rochester Field Sobriety Tests

Learn About Field Sobriety Tests from a Skilled Rochester DWI Defense Lawyer

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 getting charged with a DWI after failing a 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 Standardized Field Sobriety Tests

The Standardized Field Sobriety Test battery consists of the three tests below:

  • Walk-and-Turn: Used to determine stability and balance. If you waver, an officer may deem you intoxicated.
  • One-Leg Stand: Also used as a stability test, any faltering or wavering while standing on one leg could be seen as intoxication.
  • Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (HGN): Usually, an offer will instruct you to follow their pen, penlight or another object with your eyes without moving your head. The officer will look for a slight “bounce” of your eye while it follows the moving object.
