How the One-Leg Stand is Supposed to be Administered
This is a test of "divided attention," evaluating both mental and physical capabilities. When performing the test, you have to lift up one leg about six inches from the ground, stare down at your other foot, pin your arms to your side, point your toe out, and count out loud for about thirty seconds.
A police officer will take note of any signs that include:
- Wobbling due to imbalance
- Hopping around
- Spreading arms out to regain balance
- Setting down the other foot
All you have to do is commit two of these, and you'll be under arrest for DUI. This could be for a simple lack of balance, or due to nerves, a distracting atmosphere, or even a slanted street. Clearly, this is not a scientific test by any means. An aggressive lawyer can combat these questionable results to dismantle your DUI charge.
The DUI lawyer at the firm works with forensic experts, and they themselves bring legal expertise to the table, including considerable education in NHTSA sobriety evaluations. Not only does the firm come highly recommended, but this superior defense is available with reasonable payment plans.
