challenging field sobriety test results

If you were pulled over for suspicion of drunk driving, you may have taken field sobriety tests such as:

  • Counting fingers
  • Standing on one leg
  • Touching a finger to your nose
  • Finger tracing coordination
  • Walking a straight line
  • Horizontal gaze nystagmus (HGN) test (following an object with your eyes)

These test results may be challenged and shown to be unreliable for many reasons. Field sobriety tests are often given under poor conditions such as on an uneven surface or in bad weather. You may have a disability, a physical condition or be taking a prescription medication that affected the test results.

We will investigate how the field tests were administered and determine whether the results are admissible. If they are not, we will argue for the results to be suppressed and, when appropriate, for a reduction or dismissal of the DWI charges.
