What Is The One Leg Stand Test?

THE ONE LEG STAND TEST In this test, the suspect is instructed to stand with one foot approximately six inches off the ground and count aloud by thousands (One thousand-one, one thousand-two, etc.) until told to put the foot down. The officer times the subject for 30 seconds.

NHTSA research indicates that 83 percent of individuals who exhibit two or more such indicators in the performance of the test will have a BAC of 0.08...

Ohio Alcohol Rules: How Can A Parent Promote Moderation?

Ohio Alcohol Rules Allow For Drinking In The Home It is commonly asserted that under-age drinking laws make it illegal for anyone in the US under the age of 21 to drink alcohol. However, that is simply not true. Mothers Against Drunk Driver (MADD) has made it their mission to prohibit all underage drinking, but many parents advocate an approach which teaches children to use alcohol in a moderate and responsible manner. This myth about under-age drinking laws intimidates many parents into not teaching their children how to drink safely and in moderation and is thus seen as counterproductive.A government report to...

New Restrictions For Juvenile Drivers In Ohio Begins Today

Beginning July 1, 2015, juvenile drivers issued a probationary license will face restrictions on when they can drive and how many passengers are allowed in the car while driving based on experience instead of age. This change is a result of Ohio’s Drive Toward a Safer Ohio Initiative and is an effort to increase the level of experience for Ohio’s young drivers.“The change in driving times and the passenger restrictions during the first 12 months of driving allows Ohio’s young motorists to gain more experience on the road, while reducing their risks,” said Karhlton Moore, Executive Director of the Office...

Are You Hot? You Had Better Tell Your OVI Attorney

Sometimes having an experienced OVI attorney can make all of the difference.Breath testing equipment assumes that ALL people have an expired breath temperature of a constant 34 degrees centigrade and a constant body temperature of 37 degrees centigrade.  So, what happens if these assumptions are just a little off?The BAC will register 8.62% higher than normal for each degree that the breath temperature is above normal. So, a person registering a breath test of .143% with a body temperature of 104 degrees fahrenheit would actually have a BAC of .106%.  This means quite a bit as many prosecutors would be...

Don’t Speak English? The Standardized Field Sobriety Tests Are Unfair!

If you have a client who does not speak english (or "cop english"), or if you have a client that does not hear well, they should not be considered impaired if they cannot follow the officer's instructions during the standardized field sobriety tests.The National Sobriety Testing Resource Center has put out a study, Impediments to Testing: The Impact of Hearing Impairment and Language Barriers on the Field Sobriety Testing Function which shows exactly how unfair the standardized field sobriety tests are under these conditions. This study states that all officers conducting field sobriety tests at roadside should know the availability of deaf interpreters. ...

DUI Attorney Strategies – Know The Science!

Here is a tool that every DUI attorney should have in their arsenal.  It is a study entitled, Absorption, Distribution and Elimination of Alcohol: Highway Safety Aspects and it has a number of facts that a jury should know:The time that elapses between the driving of the car and the time of the chemical test can produce significantly different blood alcohol concentrations. The time that passes from the end of the alcohol intake until the peak alcohol concentration varies from 14 to 138 minutes in one study, to 12 to 166 minutes in another study. It is impossible to convert the alcohol concentration of...

First Offense Beavercreek OVI? Here’s What To Expect

A first offense Beavercreek OVI is defined at O.R.C. 4511.19 as a DUI with no priors within 6 years.  A first offense OVI can be charged in three ways.  The first charge is caused by testing over the legal limit of .08% B.A.C. (example O.R.C. 4511.19(A)(1)(d)).  These types of offenses are also referred to as “per se”  violations.  A second way to be charged is for violating the high-tier provision of Ohio’s OVI law.  Ohio has also created a per se “high-tier” limit of .17% BrAC, sometimes referred to as a SUPER-OVI.  The per se high-tier limits for a first offense OVI are set forth at O.R.C. 4511.19(A)(1)(f) The...
