When police stop a motorist to investigate whether he or she is driving drunk, the officer's primary objective is to collect evidence that will validate a DUI arrest. A roadside field sobriety test is one of the main methods that police use to determine whether an arrest is warranted.
It is arguably the biggest weekend of the year in our hometown. Not only does the whole world stop and watch the Indianapolis 500 (either in person or on TV), but we are all part of a three-day holiday weekend to honor our nation's fallen soldiers. Of course, the weekend also includes lots of family, friends, cook-outs, road trips, parties, tailgating and other summer-launching activities. For some people, the good times will end on a sour note when police lights come on behind their vehicle and they get pulled over for drunken driving.
