Question: What is considered failing on a DUI field sobriety test? The DUI was by Van Nuys PD

Answer: As a general rule of thumb, every police report that I have looked at in DUI cases has shown issues on FST’s, even when the person performing them feels confident they did them well. Even if there are “clues” for the officer to determine that someone has alcohol in their system, these tests are flawed to say the least and can be attacked. Most officers that I have come across do not instruct many of the tests correctly or demonstrate them. You should contact a DUI attorney in your area to discuss your case in more detail. Contact me at 818-336-1DUI. Along with attacking the FST’s, there are many other issues and defenses that can be used to your advantage. I regularly handle DUI’s in Van Nuys, CA.
