Field Sobriety Tests
Our FT. Worth DWI Lawyer Can Fight for You
When an officer pulls you over for suspicion of DWI they will make you perform a number of sobriety tests in order to establish whether you are intoxicated.
These sobriety tests are far from accurate, and even in the best of circumstances, the most effective of the tests is only 77% accurate. In order to prove that the results from your sobriety tests were not sufficient probable cause to arrest you, contact a Fort Worth DWI defense attorney today.
At The Law Office of Samuel R. Terry, P.C. we want to make sure your case gets the attention it deserves. You will be working directly with a lawyer who is highly respected in the legal community, and who has prevailed in many difficult criminal cases, from beginning to end - not with an inexperienced junior associate, paralegal or other staff.
Accuracy of Sobriety Tests
There are multiple sobriety tests used by police officers including:
- The testing on your ability to stand (One Leg Stand)
- Testing on your ability to walk and turn (Walk and Turn)
- Horizontal gaze testing (Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus)
- Finger-to-nose coordination testing
- Testing of your ability to finger count
- Testing of your ability to recite the alphabet
- Finger tracing coordination testing
There are various issues that could lead to the results of sobriety tests to be inaccurate. Any injuries or medical condition such as Parkinson's disease, or even a fever, could have affected your ability to perform the tests. If the pavement was not flat as required, the test results will be flawed. Even more compelling evidence such as breath, blood, or urine tests can be inaccurate due to a Breathalyzer not being properly calibrated, or lab technicians mixing up samples or not correctly preserving samples.
