What are the standardized field sobriety tests?



FSTs or Field Sobriety Tests, are what they call balance-oriented tests. So these tests can consist of a one leg stand, where you're basically balancing on one leg with your foot six inches from the ground, or a walk and turn exercise where you're given instructions and told to basically walk heel-to-toe down a line nine steps up and nine steps back. So these tests are not always accurate, although they're standardized in that all of the law enforcement in the state of Florida will give you the same exact test, whether you are in Canales County or Hillsboro County, or in Miami. The issue arises though that these tests by design are not set up for passing.
