DUI Information 

In Pennsylvania police officers utilize various tests to determine whether a person is sober or intoxicated. These tests are done at the time of the traffic stop by the officer on the scene of an accident or a traffic stop.  The purpose of a field sobriety test is to assist the police officer in determining whether you are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

Standardized Field Sobriety Test

When you are under investigation for a DUI, police officers often ask you to participate in a field sobriety test. 

There are a few tests that those suspected of a DUI are generally asked to perform.

  • One-legged stand 

  • Walk and turn

  • Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (HGN)

  • Walk a straight line 


A breathalyzer is a machine that measures your blood alcohol content or BAC.  The BAC  is a measurement of the percentage of alcohol in your bloodstream.   In Pennsylvania, and most other states, the legal limit is 0.08 percent.  If you are found to have a BAC of .08 percent or higher you will be charged with DUI.
