About Field Sobriety Tests

When a law enforcement officer has a reasonable suspicion that you may be operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, he or she may administer a field sobriety test. Law enforcement officers employ a broad range of field sobriety tests to determine your level of intoxication or impairment.

Some common tests include:

  • Ability to touch tip of nose with finger
  • Balance while standing on one leg
  • Horizontal eye movement test
  • Walk-and-turn test
  • Ability to count forwards and backwards

    While these field tests are widely used by law enforcement officers, a skilled attorney can easily call the validity of these test results into question. Factors such as fatigue, nervousness, the terrain on which the test was administered, the weather, and countless other circumstances can make any conclusions drawn from field sobriety tests invalid and it is possible to have these results suppressed.

    Due to the fallibility of these tests, officers of the law employ breathalyzer tests and now blood tests in conjunction with these other field sobriety tests. Contact a Boulder DUI attorney if you have participated or refused to participate in a field sobriety test and stand accused of DUI charges.
