Field Sobriety Tests We Are Here to Help You Move Forward

Rhode Island Field Sobriety Tests Lawyers

Informed & Comprehensive Legal Counsel

Many people fear being pulled over and asked to take a field sobriety test, yet they don’t realize it is entirely voluntary. Our legal team at Law Office of Jason Knight highly suggests you do not partake in this process.

Generally, law enforcement offers the opportunity to take a field sobriety test in order to find signs of impairment and establish the probable cause necessary to arrest you for DUI. Our Rhode Island DUI defense attorney will ensure you do not unknowingly incriminate yourself by taking a field sobriety test, making the officer’s claim you are drinking and driving all the more believable.

What are the Types of Field Sobriety Tests?

The 3 kinds of tests established by the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration are as follows:

  • Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (HGN) test - In this test the officer will observe the eyes of the person in question as they slowly move a pen or small object back and forth.
  • Walk-and-turn test - In this test, the officer instructs the person to take nine steps, touching heel-to-toe in a straight line and the return back.
  • One-leg stand test - In this test, the officer instructs the person to stand with one foot off the ground and hold it for about 30 seconds or until told to put it down.

Are You Required To Perform Field Sobriety Tests?

The truth of the matter is, you have the right to refuse a field sobriety test, without any consequence. While this isn’t the case with a breath test, our legal team suggests you take advantage of your rights to deny partaking in a standardized field sobriety test.

These tests are meant to test your physical and mental capabilities in an unbiased and accurate way, but the way they are administered by a police officer may affect the way you perform. If you have taken a field sobriety test and feel as though the results were skewed or otherwise incorrectly used against you, it is vital you do your part to protect yourself, your future, and reputation--speak to us immediately.
