West Palm Beach, FL (I-Newswire) September 21, 2012 - The leading DUI lawyers in West Palm Beach, Florida, Musca Law, have written a new blog post that explores the roadside sobriety tests that drivers can expect to face, including the horizontal gaze nystagmus, or HGN, test. These tests are conducted on people that are pulled over for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
The lawyers at Musca Law have years of experience and have shared that experience with readers of their blog at www.westpalmduilawyers.com.
Some of the explanations covered in this blog post include:
One Leg Stand Test: the post explains what officers are looking for when they ask someone to take part in this roadside sobriety test, which Musca Law says is used frequently, but is not always an accurate test.
Walk And Turn Test: the post explains exactly how this test works and what to expect if you are asked to take this test.
Regarding the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test, the post explains that it is said to be the most accurate way to judge if someone is impaired while they are driving. The HGN test needs to be conducted in light, so the officer will use a small flashlight in order to conduct the test. The person under suspicion of driving while impaired must pass the test in order to show that they are sober.
The officer is looking to see if:
• The eye fails to follow the object smoothly.
• There is eye jerking when the object is as far as possible from the center and is held for 4 seconds.
• The jerking starts before the object reaches an angle of 45 degrees from the center.
