Those who get pulled over on a DUI stop are often asked to perform a field sobriety test to determine whether or not the driver is intoxicated. Those asked to perform such tests should know the tests are not scientific measurements of blood alcohol concentration.
Remember that you are not required to do these field tests, but keep in mind that if you refuse the field sobriety test, you may have your blood alcohol levels tested at some point. This may include a trip to the police station and an extended period there while the test is prepared and administered.
