What are field sobriety tests? What happens if I fail a field sobriety test?
“Field sobriety tests are a series of tests that an officer will conduct if he believes you could be under the influence or driving under the influence.
These tests can range from anything like tilting your head back, closing your eyes, and estimating 30 seconds to yourself; lifting your foot off the ground, pointing your toe, and counting from 1000 to 1030; the finger to nose test; or, like everyone’s heard of, is the walk the line test or heel to toe test.
If you fail those tests or the officer believes you can’t drive a vehicle like a reasonable prudent person, they will then place you under arrest and take you down to the station to conduct what they call a chemical test, a blood or a breath test that measure your blood alcohol content.” – DUI Defense Attorney Philip Greenberg
