Breath Tests and Field Sobriety Tests

Ohio Breathalyzer Defense Attorneys

Being pulled over after consuming alcohol is often frightening and confusing. You may not immediately recall the number of drinks you have had prior to driving. Adding to the difficulty of calculating whether or not you are over the legal limit of .08 blood alcohol content (BAC) is the fact that, for every hour since your first drink, your body has processed a small amount of the alcohol you have consumed.

For ready calculation of your likely BAC, feel free to print the chart below. You can keep it in your wallet and refer to it if you ever have a question about your likely BAC. If you are at or below .08 then submitting to a breath test, blood tests or chemical test is advisable.

At The Farrish Law Firm, L.P.A., our Cincinnati field sobriety test lawyers offer preeminent DUI/OVI defense for the residents of Ohio and Kentucky. Attorney Kelly Farrish is a Qualified Instructor of the National Highway Traffic Administration Field Sobriety Tests (Roadside Test).

Field Sobriety Tests Will Only Hurt Your Case

Never take field sobriety tests, including hand-held Breathalyzers. Those portable devices are notorious for inaccurate readings. Some of the tests a peace officer may request that you complete include:

  • Horizontal gaze nystagmus
  • Walk and turn
  • One leg stand

You may also encounter the following, lesser employed tests:

  • Finger to nose
  • Finger count
  • Alphabet
  • Reverse number count
