Often times when new DUI clients call our office they tell us that they passed the field sobriety tests.
Our response is usually: “If you’re talking to us, then you probably didn’t pass the field sobriety tests.”
Why you think you passed the field sobriety tests
Typically, people think they passed the field sobriety tests because the officer didn’t say anything or they thought they did a good job.
In our experience, most officers don’t flat out say: “You failed!” They put you through each test, make observations and then place you under arrest. Sometimes they challenge you after the test on how much you have really been drinking. Most people say “two beers.” After the field sobriety tests, some officers ask again because based on your performance they don’t believe you.
People also think they did a good job. This is because they don’t understand all the clues the officer is looking for during the field sobriety tests.
