It is common for a sober motorist to mimic signs of impairment during a traffic stop. Fear, nervousness, physical disabilities, fatigue, etc. may cause a motorist to exhibit many of the same clues as an impaired driver during the standardized field sobriety testing (SFST) phase of an investigation for driving under the influence. The experimental procedure and methods used to develop SFST have not been peer-reviewed which is the customary method for validation in the scientific community. To learn more about the flawed science behind SFST contact Travis Newton for a free consultation.


An arrest for driving under the influence can leave the accused motorist feeling helpless and confused. A DUI conviction will add a permanent stain to a defendant's criminal background check.
