Are field sobriety tests accurate?

Field sobriety tests may be the most utilized tool to identify intoxication, but they are not always accurate. Although they are used by law enforcement in almost every state, they are often designed to target weaknesses and may lead to unnecessary failure. If any part of the test is administered incorrectly, the field sobriety test may not be reliable and information acquired may be thrown out. In some situations, the entire case might be dismissed.

To learn more about your legal rights and the potential flaws with field sobriety tests, contact the Raleigh DWI defense attorneys at the law offices of Jim Black by calling 919-600-4609.


"Jim, I just wanted to thank you again for everything you did for me. I am very happy about the outcome and would recommend you to anyone and everyone who has a DUI case. Two things that stuck out the most is your patience and honesty, you wanted the best for me and that was obvious."
