What are field sobriety tests?

If a West Virginia law enforcement officer suspects that a driver is operating their vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, then they will stop that person and assess the driver's condition. There are a variety of tools that officers may employ to determine if a person is intoxicated and one of those tools is a spectrum of field sobriety tests. This post will discuss a few of the common roadside tests people may be asked to perform if they are suspected of drinking and driving.

How and why DUI charges can be successfully defended

Imagine that a person goes out to have a drink or two with a few friends to celebrate a new job or a birthday. The event itself doesn't really matter, but what does matter is that this hard-working and otherwise honest individual thinks that after a couple of drink he or she is not over the legal limit. So they get into their car and drive off. Soon after, they are pulled over and a police officer gets them to take a breath test. There they learn that their blood alcohol concentration is over 0.08. They are arrested for driving under the influence.
