First thing to keep in mind upon getting pulled over for DUI is that you do not have to submit to any type of field sobriety tests. This right only applies to people who are over the age of 21 and had not had a DUI conviction for the last 10 years. However, after arrest it is important that you do submit to any field sobriety test in order to avoid to the suspension of your licence. Field sobriety tests are prone to error since only few officers follow the strict government set procedures for the roadside sobriety tests. However, refusal to submit to a field sobriety test for DUI is likely to raise suspicion and or the officer deeming you uncooperative. But there are many valid reasons that can prevent you from submitting to the field sobriety tests for DUI despite not being under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
It is essential to know that cops can't be trusted to produce evidence that will benefit you on your DUI case in court. They are only there to aid in your prosecution. Therefore, the Law Offices of Karan K. Gill suggests that you don't submit to any type of field sobriety tests prior to arrest since the results are in the mercy of subjective thinking of the officer.
