Rochester DWI Attorney Discusses the Common Field Sobriety Tests

As an experienced Rochester DWI Attorney, I am frequently asked what takes place in a field sobriety test during a DUI stop.

  • You can see tests that may include-
    • Repeating the Alphabet.
    • Counting from 1 through 20, or any variations.
    • Finger to Nose test – You lean your head back and are required to touch your finger to your nose.
    • Walk and Turn Test – You must walk several steps on an imaginary line.
    • One Leg Stand Test – You must stand and raise on leg for a period of a few seconds.
    • A police officer may use a Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test to see the movement of your eyes.
