What if You Fail Roadside Sobriety Tests?
You’re going to be arrested. There is no pass or fail; you can only show signs consistent with impairment, to indicate to the officer whether or not you’re likely to have a BAC over 0.08. Some clients think they passed the test with flying colors, but if you’ve been arrested you probably didn’t; they are looking for things you don’t even know they’re looking for.
The test actually starts during the instructions, and officers count cues such as using your arms to balance on the walk and turn. It’s difficult to do well on sobriety tests even if you’re sober because you’re nervous and on the side of the road. They are solely designed to help the officer collect evidence against you; they don’t ever help you.
