Non-Standardized Field Sobriety Tests are invalid in Court

     Did you realize that Non-Standard Field Sobriety Tests are not valid in court?  Non-standard field sobriety tests, such as touching your finger to your nose, are not much more accurate than a coin toss to see if you are under the influence.  Neither the Federal Government’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration nor medical science consider touching your finger to your nose,  reciting the alphabet, or counting backwards as valid tests to determine whether a person is driving under the influence.
