Studies have shown that sobriety tests are not accurate at all. In fact in 1991, Dr. Spurgeon Cole of Clemson University conducted a study on the accuracy of FSTs. His staff videotaped individuals performing six common field sobriety tests, then showed the tapes to 14 police officers and asked them to decide whether the suspects had “had too much to drink and drive”. Unknown to the officers, the blood-alcohol concentration of each of the 21 DUI subjects was .00%, stone sober. The results: the officers gave their opinion that 46% of these innocent people were too drunk to drive! In other words, the field sobriety tests were hardly more accurate at detecting intoxication than flipping a coin.
Attorney Robert Malove has attended and completed the 40-hour Miami-Dade Police Academy Field Sobriety Testing Course and knows how to to attack the scientific unreliability of the Field Sobriety Tests as part of his “leave no stone unturned” approach to DUI defense.
