Tempe Field Sobriety Tests Attorney
Field Sobriety Tests Lawyer in Tempe
If you have been arrested and charged with any DUI offense, it is likely that you submitted to one or more "field sobriety tests". If this is your situation, it is important that you contact a Tempe field sobriety tests lawyer as soon as possible after any DUI arrest. These tests are administered by law enforcement when they want to determine whether you are DUI or not. The tests are evaluated by the individual performing the test, and as each person's observational skills are extremely varied, they are not really "scientific" tests at all. Even the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration measures their best test (by study) as being only 88% accurate, and this is after the individual has had specific training on how to administer the test. What this means to you is that if you have had these tests administered, it is quite possible that the determination of "DUI" could have been completely inaccurate.
