We can determine if human error occurred during your DUI arrest.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration maintains standards law enforcement officials must adhere to, so they can conduct sobriety tests in a specific manner. Through our investigations, we have found instances when many law enforcement officers have deviated from the proper way of conducting these tests. In the 1990s, the NHTSA validated three tests for DUI: Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus, Walk-and-Turn and the One-Leg Stand. When officers deviate from the three tests, they compromise the validity of the testing process.
At Skidmore Investigations, the main reason you should turn to us for DUI help is because, when a person is pulled over for a suspected DUI, there is opportunity for human error with regard to law enforcement. When considering your options regarding your DUI, consider these questions:
- Did the law enforcement officer give the instructions properly?
- Did they ask the specific questions that are required?
- Did they properly identify the standard cues of impairment for the different phases of the DUI stop?
- Did they properly administer the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test?
- Did they properly administer the Walk-and-Turn test?
- Did they properly administer the One-Leg Stand test?
- Did they properly identify the clues according to the standards set by the NHTSA?
If you are unsure about the answers to these questions, our skilled investigative team at Skidmore Investigations can offer DUI help. We offer DUI help, so please contact us today for further assistance.
