DUI involving drugs. Alcohol consumption is not the only way to be convicted of a DUI. At the
driver's license hearings it will be determined whether or not your license will be suspended. If you are arrested for
driving while suspended, your suspension time could be increased as well as fines and jail time.

Field Sobriety Tests
One of the main types of evidence that can be held against you in a DUI case is the results of your field sobriety test. There are three main field sobriety tests used in the U.S. The first is the walk and turn test. This divided attention test requires the driver to walk along a straight line heel-to-toe while counting their steps out loud. The second test is the one leg stand. This is also a divided attention test and it requires them to balance while counting. Lastly, the horizontal gaze nystagmus test is used to examine exaggerated jerking in the eye. Although these tests are useful in determining whether or not a person is under the influence of alcohol, they are not completely accurate. If you believe the results of your test could be challenged, Attorney Schanker could be able to help you.
