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.

TITLE XXI  Motor Vehicles
CHAPTER 265  Rules of the Road – Serious Traffic Offenses
RSA 265:79  (2012)

265:79  Reckless Driving; Minimum Penalty.

Whoever upon any way drives a vehicle recklessly, or causes a vehicle to be driven recklessly, as defined in RSA 626:2, II(c)*, or so that the lives or safety of the public shall be endangered, or upon a bet, wager, or race, or who drives a vehicle for the purpose of making a record, and thereby violates any of the provisions of this title or any rules adopted by the director, shall be, notwithstanding the provisions of title LXII, guilty of a violation and fined not less than $500 for the first offense and $750 for the second offense nor more than $1,000 and his or her license shall be revoked for a period of 60 days for the first offense and from 60 days to one year for the second offense.

* RSA 626:2 II (c) General Requirements of Culpability: “Recklessly” is denied as follows:

“Recklessly”.  A person acts recklessly with respect to a material element of an offense when he is aware of and consciously disregards a substantial and unjustifiable risk that the material element exists or will result from his conduct.  The risk must be of such a nature and degree that considering the circumstances known to him, its disregard constitutes a gross deviation from the conduct that a law-abiding person would observe in such a situation.  A person who creates such a risk but is unaware thereof solely by reason of having voluntarily engaged in intoxication or hypnosis also acts recklessly with regard thereto.

Wishing Everyone a Safe and Happy 4th of July! from New Hampshire DWI Attorney Mark Stevens 603-893-0074 [24/7]

Happy Fourth of July! New Hampshire DWI Laws. You should be aware that there are enhanced police activities during this weekend, including DWI roadblocks and “DWI saturation patrols”, which are officers turned loose with a directive to make DWI arrests that are paid for by federal grants. If they don’t make enough arrests, they may not get a grant the next time federal money is being doled out. So be carfeul this weekend.

In an effort to reduce your chances of being pulled over and hassled, (whether you have been drinking or not) here’s a few tips:

1.Make Sure Your Inspection Stickers and Registrations Are Valid Especially during this high-traffic weekend, make sure your inspection sticker and registration are valid and up to date. Police will immediately pull you over if they notice your sticker is expired, and if there’s a chance that you have been drinking, the consequence could be much more severe. The penalty for a motor vehicle code is usually around $60, but if the police smell alcohol, there’s a good chance that you may end up arrested. Save the hassle and avoid it all, have your stickers up to date! 2.Make Sure Your Plate Lights and Other Lights Work Every day when the sun starts to set, it is important to have your headlights on to avoid any accidents with other vehicles. This weekend especially, make sure that your lights (tail, head, plate, etc.) on your car aren’t in need of replacement and are correctly functioning. If the police notice your car driving in the dark with no lights on, there’s another immediate reason to pull you over. Police will sometimes assume that you forgot to turn them on due to being drunk. They will use any reason they can to land a DWI on you. Avoid this at all costs by taking precautionary steps to avoid unwanted encounters with police!

If you can remember just 2 of these tips, you’ve already gotten this fabulous holiday weekend off to a great start!  Remember to arm yourself with the knowledge of your rights during an objectionable encounter with police and to also be prepared for police blockades in your travels this weekend!
