California takes DUI charges very seriously. Law enforcement and prosecuting attorneys work hard to see that those responsible for damages and injuries caused as a result of driving under the influence face maximum penalties. It is important to understand that a DUI arrest can stem, not only as a result of alcohol intoxication but from drug intoxication as well. Prescription medications and illegal drugs are equally capable of affecting a person’s ability to drive.
After a DUI accident, it is not uncommon for law enforcement to perform field sobriety tests, as well as breath and blood tests. These types of tests, however, are not without error. An evaluation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration discovered that only about 77% of the common field sobriety tests are accurate—and only if executed under perfect conditions.
