Why You Shouldn’t Always Blow from Salem, NH DWI & Criminal Defense Lawyer Mark Stevens 603-893-0074 (24/7)

Reasonable Reasons You Should Refuse Field Sobriety Tests from NH DUI Lawyer Mark Stevens 603-893-0074 (24/7)

 

According to DUI  attorneys roadside sobriety tests currently remain one of the most common ways used by police to measure your level of intoxication. If you find yourself in this unfortunate position, you should bear in mind that you don’t have to take these tests and here’s why…

 

Field sobriety tests are designed to do 2 main things:

1.) To trick you.
2.) For you to fail.

 

Field Sobriety Tests  (FST’s) are known to be an inaccurate measurement of sobriety. Results can be attributed to a variety of factors including weather, medication, the surface upon which they are conducted, type of footwear you are wearing, injuries, and even just anxiety.

 

Here are some reasons that many people refuse a field sobriety test:

1) Results can vary dramatically.

2) Tests can be inaccurate – According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration; several of the most popular FSTs are highly inaccurate. Take the walk-and-turn test for example. Even when administered perfectly, it only has a 68% accuracy rate.

3) Personal medical conditions can play a large role in the outcome – If you’re an individual who experiences inner ear problems; pain in your arms, feet, legs, or back; vision problems; etc., these can all play a role in the outcome of your tests, and will likely effect it negatively.

 

Field sobriety tests also assume that each person is exactly the same – same height, same weight, and without disabilities or other sicknesses. This means that if the field sobriety test alone can convict people, nearly one in three people would be wrongly arrested.

 

These reasons are just a few of the many why you should consider declining a cop’s request to perform a field sobriety test.

Guilty Upon Cooperation? Blowing Into the Breath Test Hose Can Get You Convicted, Whether You’re Drunk or Sober by Mark Stevens 603-893-0074

Guilty if You Cooperate? Blowing Into the Breath Test Hose Can Get You Convicted, Whether You’re Drunk or Sober by Mark Stevens 603-893-0074

New Hampshire has some heavy-duty consequences if convicted of some DWI laws that prohibit you from driving while intoxicated. No one encourages any one to drive drunk, so a law that prohibits drunk driving makes sense. But that’s only half of the law. The law includes a “per se” provision that prohibits people from driving with a breath or blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher, or a .02 or higher if the driver is under 21. The .08 and the .02 numbers have absolutely nothing to do with whether the driver is drunk or not; in fact that’s why the numbers were created, to make it easy for the state to prosecute people whether they’re drunk or not. Few drivers under the age of 21 are drunk at a .02 level, not even close. It’s just an arbitrary number with origins in politics, not science.

Upon arrest for DWI, the driver is faced with a difficult decision: whether to blow into an old box, placing his faith, freedom and right to drive in the accuracy of an old box with a rubber hose attached to it. Or,  the driver could refuse and face a potential license suspension. If the driver asks the police officer any questions about this choice, the police are trained to say that they can’t help.  Instead, tell them you want to speak with your lawyer, and call Attorney Mark Stevens 24/7.

Call Mark Stevens, he can help and will know what to do. Call Salem, NH Attorney Mark Stevens 24/7 @ 603.893.0074.
