When you have been pulled over and are suspected of drunk driving, you could be asked to provide a breath or blood sample. You may also be asked to take a series of Field Sobriety Tests. Misconceptions exist about what your rights are and what these types of tests are. Misunderstandings can lead to more problems, especially if you are facing DWI charges in Texas.
Police officers use these tests in roadside testing and following arrests to help determine whether an alleged drunk driver was under the influence of alcohol while operating a vehicle. These tests can be used for operators of cars and trucks as well as operators of motorcycles, boats, and other vehicles.
