WEBINAR DESCRIPTION

Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (FSTs) have been validated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In this one-hour webinar, CDLA Expert Stan Dorrance will address the following topics:

How was the validation made?

Why is the validation scientifically unacceptable?

What are the pitfalls of FSTs?

What questions can you ask the officer to determine if the FSTs were done correctly?

Even if done correctly, what do FSTs really show?
