Fail to inquire about medical conditions that may cause you to perform poorly on the Field Sobriety Tests | DWI/DUI Lawyer | North Carolina

7. Fail to inquire about medical conditions that may cause you to perform poorly on the Field Sobriety Tests.

Many times officers, while conducting Field Sobriety Tests, will fail to inquire about medical conditions that may cause you to perform poorly on the physical tests. For example, if you have bunions that cause you severe pain whenever standing, that could inhibit your ability to stand on one foot and balance for 30 seconds and your medical condition should be considered when asked to perform physical tests.
