When your car is stopped in Jacksonville for DUI (Driving Under the Influence), the police officer will ask you to perform field sobriety exercises to test your level of impairment. If you are pulled over by a Jacksonville DUI police officer, that officer will most likely have a video camera in his or her vehicle to record your performance on these exercises. Sometimes, the video will not be viewable and the officer will insist that he or she had a video malfunction.
There are several exercises Jacksonville officers ask DUI suspects perform. They are:
Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus
The Finger to Nose
Walk the Line
One Leg Stand
