Perhaps you were driving home one evening when you saw flashing lights in your rearview mirror. You began pulling to the side of the road to let the patrol car pass but then realized you were the officer's target. As the officer approached your vehicle, you may have wondered why he or she stopped you.
It became apparent rather quickly that the officer suspected you of drinking and driving. He or she asked you to exit your vehicle. Once you did, the officer asked you to participate in field sobriety tests. Before doing or saying anything, you should stop right there. You should know your rights and understand a few things about these tests first.
