Ask Defender Nava: For a DUI, should I always do the "Sobriety Tests?"
NO. California does not require you to perform the sobriety tests. The tests are usually not accurate because they were validated under controlled conditions. In most situations, the tests will hurt your DUI case more than refusing them. Most of the time they will be used in court to show you were DUI. Want to know more?
