If you are like a lot of people in Arizona, you are no doubt aware of the stereotype surrounding alleged drunk drivers. Even the term alone is likely to conjure up a certain image in your mind of a person who is not very responsible and who is so intoxicated that they can barely speak or stand properly. However, the truth of the matter is that many very responsible people who do not readily appear to be intoxicated can and do find themselves charged with driving under the influence offenses.
When questioned by a law enforcement officer for suspected impaired driving, a person may be asked to take some field sobriety tests before a breath or another chemical test is ever administered. These field tests are used to provide support for the allegation that you might be intoxicated so that the officer has legal cause to place you under arrest and charge you with a DUI. As explained by FieldSobrietyTests.org, none of these three field tests are fully accurate.
