There is a great deal of room for human error in these tests. The officer
may fail to administer the test properly. You may not be able to understand
the instructions, or may not be coordinated. Factors such as age, weight,
medical conditions, or even feeling nervous can severely skew any of these
results. In any such instance, you could be mistakenly charged with a
DUI. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), these
field sobriety tests can only be 65-77% reliable at best. In fact, the NHTSA approximates that as much as 25% of those charged
with a DUI because of field sobriety tests were not actually under the
influence. An experienced
DUI defense attorney will know how to probe for the evidence to show that your test results
are highly questionable.
