Charged with a DUI?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, NHTSA, standardized the field sobriety tests for law enforcement to properly conduct the tests in a specific manner. Through our investigations we have found where many law enforcement officers deviate from the proper way of conducting the SFST. In the 1990s, NHTSA validated three tests for DUI/DWI: Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus, Walk-and-Turn and the One-Leg Stand. When officers deviate from the three tests they compromise the validity of the tests.

Why choose Skidmore Investigations?

The reason you would want to hire our investigator in regards to your DUI/DWI is because when a person is pulled over for a suspected DUI, there is opportunity for human error with regard to law enforcement. When considering your options regarding your DUI/DWI consider these questions:

  • Did the law enforcement officer give the instructions properly?
  • Did he ask the specific questions that are required?
  • Did he properly identify the standard cues of impairment for the different phases of the DUI stop?
  • Did he properly administer the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test?
  • Did he properly administer the Walk-and-Turn test?
  • Did he properly administer the One-Leg stand test?
  • Did he properly identify the clues according to the standard set by NHTSA?
