THE DANGERS OF DWI NO REFUSAL WEEKENDS IN HOUSTON

Trichter & LeGrand DWI Lawyers

No Refusal weekends are a new phenomenon coined by law enforcement to advertise that police agencies will ask for a search warrant to seize a blood sample from a driver, if you refuse to take the breath test. 

The state of Texas allows a driver to refuse a breath or blood test, unless a judge issues a search warrant.

The idea behind DWI No Refusal Weekends is this: law enforcement wants you to make it easy for them to get evidence to convict you if you have done something wrong. 

However, among the many problems with DWI testing administered by law enforcement, breath test evidence is the most unreliable scientific evidence because it is based upon the theory of getting air from the lungs, and testing it for alcohol saturation. 

In truth, that is not where breath alcohol comes from. 

Breath alcohol comes from the entire air system throughout your body–not just the deep lung area making the breath test fundamentally flawed and inaccurate.

DWI Sobriety Tests are Designed to Fail You

DWI SOBRIETY TESTS ARE DESIGNED TO FAIL YOU

DWI Lawyer Trichter & LeGrand

It’s no surprise that DWI sobriety tests are designed so that you will fail them. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website:

The Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST) is a battery of three tests administered and evaluated in a standardized manner to obtain validated indicators of impairment and establish probable cause for arrest. These tests are administered systematically and are evaluated according to measured responses of the [potential suspect].”

What are the flaws of DWI field sobriety tests?

The SFST tests are unfortunately designed to fail people because an officer doesn’t have to tell you what they’re going to grade you on—and that’s just ridiculous! 

Imagine if your child came home from school and said, “I got a 98 today on my math test, but I failed.” 

It’s not different that that in the world of SFST testing. 

Even if you get a 98, you fail and you will be arrested for DWI. 

That’s how unfair these tests are!

A standardized test implies that all test takers answer the same questions, and that the test is then scored in a consistent manner and compared to the relative performance of others who took the same test. 

Your DWI defense should not only understand the importance of the proper procedures in administering these tests, but also the “science” behind the interpretation of your personal results of preforming unfamiliar motor sequences. 

That’s why having a DWI specialist in your corner is so important.
