Field Sobriety Tests: What You Need to Know

Jessica-Fallon.pngWhy do police officers make suspected drunk drivers stare at a pen, stand on one leg, and walk a straight line? These "tests" are called "Standardized Field Sobriety Tests" (SFST) and were developed in the late 1970s and early 1980s as a way for law enforcement to establish a standardized method to help them determine whether an individual is too impaired to drive. However, these tests are actually meant to predict the probability that an individual's Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) is higher than .08, the legal limit in most states.
