What are typical field sobriety tests?

If you are pulled over because a Massachusetts law enforcement officer suspects you of drunk driving, the officer may require you to undergo a number of field sobriety tests to determine if your level of intoxication is apparent enough to warrant a breathalyzer or potential arrest for driving under the influence. But what are field sobriety tests, and what do typical ones entail?

Driving under the influence of (any) drugs can get you arrested

Everyone knows that drinking and driving can result in a DUI/OWI if you are "over the limit." But you may be less sure about driving under the influence of drugs. How do they measure "drugged driving"? How do they know if it was a legal or illegal substance?

You can't fool the DUI breath test: Don't fall for the myths

A person pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving might be asked to take a breath test to determine what their blood alcohol concentration percentage is. The results can determine whether they will face criminal charges or license suspension for drunk driving.

How a drunk driving conviction can affect your career

A drunk driving conviction can affect many areas of your life. Your career is one of these areas. Of course, the best way to keep a drunk driving conviction from harming your career is to simply avoid getting the charge in the first place. But if you do find yourself facing a drunk driving charge, you need to plan your defense carefully.

Can you legally refuse a breath test in Massachusetts?

You may be tempted to try to sneak under the radar when driving under the influence on Massachusetts streets and highways. But when the inevitable happens and you are pulled over by the police for behavior indicative of drunken driving, you may feel, under implied consent standards, as though you have no choice but to submit to the breathalyzer test administered by the attending officer. This, in fact, is not true and you may have options other than taking a standard breath test.

Understanding criteria for a hardship license in Massachusetts

If your license has been suspended by the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles for driving under the influence of alcohol or other substances, you may find yourself struggling to keep your job or maintain any sort of gainful employment if your employment requires being able to transport yourself to and from work, job sites or other key locations. At John B. Seed, Attorney we take pride in supporting you in resolving your DUI to ensure that you are able to maintain your quality of life and work via an application for a hardship license.
