      FST DUI Fresno Police Driunk Driving Defense AttorneyIf you are detained on a suspicion of DUI in Fresno, the police officer may ask you to perform a field sobriety test. Field sobriety tests are physical tests that are theoretically supposed to determine whether or not a person is capable of driving safely, or if the person may be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Field sobriety tests are supposed to measure how well a person performs with divided attention – the reasoning behind this being that driving requires the performance of several individual tasks simultaneously, and an individual who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs will not be able to perform tasks which require divided attention. While there are several types of field sobriety tests, only three are recognized as standard field sobriety tests. These three tests are: the walk and turn, the one leg stand, and the horizontal gaze nystagmus.

      SFST Walk and Turn Fresno DUI Police Field Sobriety TestMany people may not realize that these field sobriety tests in Fresno County, unlike the breath and blood tests, do not fall under implied consent laws. This means that if you are pulled over on a suspected DUI, you have the right to refuse to take any field sobriety tests without impacting your driving record, however, this does not apply to Minors under 21. Often, police officers may forget to mention that these tests are optional, leaving drivers uninformed of their rights. A well-practiced Fresno DUI attorney will look at the details of your case to ensure that you were properly informed of your rights with regards to field sobriety tests. Additionally, an experienced Fresno DUI lawyer will be certain to examine any conditions surrounding the test, including the location, the instructions, and any other key evidence.  If you have been arrested for DUI in Fresno, it is important to retain the services of a qualified Fresno DUI attorney in order to give you the best representation possible, especially if field sobriety tests were administered at the time of your arrest.
