DUI Sobriety Testing

5Standard Field Sobriety Testing (SFST)


Tulsa DUI Attorney Zach Smith is a certified instructor of the SFST (Standardized Field Sobriety Tests).  This means he can teach the police officers how to properly perform these tests (although he never does!!!).

Standard Field Sobriety Testing involves a series of three tests:

1. Follow pen with your eyes
2. Walking heel to toe
3. Standing on one foot

The Police Officer will give you specific instructions for each test and will grade them accordingly. The testing is completely subjective, that is, the result of your test depends upon what the Officer grading your test wants to do. You should NEVER take these tests.


Should You Take the Tests?


NEVER take any of these tests. There is no legal requirement to take any field sobriety tests. There are a number of things that can cause you to fail these tests other than being impaired. These can include: nervousness, illness, inner-ear problems, fatigue, physical disabilities, weather, lighting, coordination, weight and age. Additionally, the Police Officer who already thinks you are impaired will be grading your tests. Why else would they ask you to take them?

Just tell the Police Officer that you would like to call an attorney before taking ANY tests and CALL TULSA DUI GUY ZACH SMITH IMMEDIATELY at 918.582.2520. Zach Smith is the best DUI Lawyer in Tulsa Oklahoma. Know you rights and don’t take your chances alone.
