Standardized Field Sobriety Testing in Highwood, IL

Jerald Novak is the only DUI defense attorney in Lake County to have taken the police officers training course on standardized field sobriety tests, and is also be certified to teach the course to police officers. Jerald Novak understands how the tests work, and how they are flawed.  These flaws are the keys to successfully defending your DUI case.

When police officers take the training course, they have 40 hours of class including practice demonstrations, a thick textbook to study, and time to prepare for a scheduled exam. However, when you are pulled over, you’re expected to perform the tests perfectly, in the middle of the night, on the side of the road with flashing lights, traffic going by and a long list of specific instructions given all at once. There is little to no chance that anyone taking tests who practice could possibly pass them.

Balancing on one foot, walking an imaginary line and touching the tip of your nose are common tests. These tests are designed to validate the arrests. Are any of these skills necessary to safely operate a vehicle?
