Anderson, S.C. DUI Lawyers


Travis Newton Anderson DUI Lawyer

The procedural flaws in standardized field sobriety tests are further aggravated when instructions and demonstrations are communicated to the driver in a manner inconsistent with NHTSA guidelines. The experimental procedures used in the development of standardized field sobriety tests are unreliable based on several factors, including the incomplete scripted instructions police officers are trained to deliver and natural human reactions to fear misinterpreted as clues of impairment by police officers. Participant performance in a lab setting was not negatively impacted by the fear of instant incarceration, loss of driver's license, and potential unemployment as a consequence of a failure. If the South Carolina Driver's License (SCDL) is suspended for refusing to submit a breath, blood, or urine sample for chemical testing or for registering an alcohol concentration of .15 or higher, there are important filing deadlines that can disqualify relief in the form of a temporary alcohol license so don't wait to contact a DUI Lawyer.


South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) is responsible for the inspection of each certified breath-testing device. A minimum of one inspection must be performed in the three months prior to any subject sample taken. Failure to perform an inspection within the required time signifies proper procedures were not followed. Anderson DUI Lawyer Travis Newton investigates incident reports, forensic reports, toxicology results, traffic stop videos, breath test videos, breath alcohol analysis test reports, standardized field sobriety tests (video), breath records, timestamp records, solution change records, calibration records, certification records, and all other items of material and exculpatory evidence.
