What is the one-leg stand field sobriety test?

In a previous post, the walk-and-turn field sobriety test was reviewed. However, that is not the only test you may be asked to take if a law enforcement officer in Connecticut suspects you may be impaired by alcohol while driving. FieldSobrietyTests.org explains that a second test also evaluates your ability to balance, follow instructions and execute multiple tasks simultaneously. This is called the one-leg stand test.

The walk-and-turn field sobriety test

If you have been arrested for an impaired driving offense in Connecticut, you may have been asked to participate in field sobriety tests by officers. As explained by FieldSobrietyTests.org, these tests are sanctioned by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are are used by law enforcement to provide them with probable cause to arrest you for drunk driving.

Man charged in alleged drunk driving death

Connecticut residents who have ever heard about people being charged with criminal offenses after traffic accidents should know this can and does happen to everyday people. When it comes to accidents involving allegations of drunk driving, stereotypes may abound but the facts in a case should be focused on. These charges can be scary but defendants should always remember that their rights matter as well.
