Be alert if an officer asks you to take a field sobriety test

If you are enjoying a night out with friends, and determine you have had too much alcohol to drink in order to drive home safely, you may decide to rely on a transportation service to provide your ride home. However, even if you imbibe only a glass of wine with dinner, it's no guarantee you won't run into trouble when driving home later. In fact, there are people who have faced serious legal problems when police accuse them of drunk driving and they did not consume alcohol.

As surprising as it may seem, other things can cause your breath to register as alcohol if you take a Breathalyzer test. In addition to this type of electronic device, a police officer may ask you to perform one, or even several, field sobriety tests during a traffic stop. If this happens, you can reasonably assume that you are going to face several legal challenges in your near future.
