Question: What Should I Do If I Am Asked to Take a Field Sobriety Test in Florida?
Well, when people say, field sobriety test, they really mean field sobriety exercises, and so our position has always been in advising our clients, never submit to field sobriety exercises. They are intended to be voluntary. It is within your right to refuse those, and you should not have to display your sobriety to the officers prior to the officer making an arrest decision. Besides, if you do go ahead and submit to those, all the evidence, all the observations that have been made by the officer about your inability to do the exercise or follow instructions will be used against you later in court.
