The pictures and a citation will then be sent to the vehicle owner about a week after the offense."  Dayton Police Detective Carol Johnson said she is hopeful the mobile unit will slow drivers...

Standardization Vital to Validity of Field Tests

The Importance of Standardization The validity of Standardized Field Sobriety Tests results is dependent upon practitioners following the established, standardized procedures for test administration and scoring. NHTSA's SFST Student Manual states that the procedures demonstrated in the training program describe how SFSTs should be administered under ideal conditions, but that ideal conditions do not always exist in the field. Variations from ideal conditions, and deviations from the standardized procedures, might affect the evidentiary weight that should be given to test results.Courts in several states have reviewed the admissibility of field sobriety tests that assess physical coordination and have held that deviations in the...

Protecting You From Illegal Police Stops! The Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution protects you against unreasonable searches and seizures, which  includes being unlawfully or illegally pulled over or stopped by law enforcement.  An officer cannot simply pull you over based on a hunch or intuition.  When a police officer observes a traffic violation, he or she is justified in initiating a limited stop for the purpose of issuing a citation.  State v. Brickman (2001), 11th Dist. No. 2000-P-oo58, 2001 Ohio App. LEXIS 2575.  The legal standard applied to traffic stops is reasonable and articulable suspicion, which means that the...
