Are you 65 years old & arrested for a California DUI ?

California DUI Lawyer news

If you are 65 years old or more, did the California DUI police officer have you perform field sobriety testing like the Walk and Turn and the One Leg Stand?

If so, you want your California Drunk Driving Attorney to bring in this federal DUI manual:

According to the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) February 2006 Standard Field Sobriety Testing (SFST) manual, regarding the Walk and Turn and One Leg Stand tests, it states: (T)he original research indicated that individuals over 65 years of age.....had difficulty performing (these) test(s).

This is another reason why senior citizens arrested for a California Drunk Driving charge need to retain an experienced California DUI Attorney.
