Do I have to take a Field Sobriety Test under Maine’s Drunk Driving Laws?

By: LawInfo

No. You do not have to submit to any part of a field sobriety test if you choose not to. This means you do not have to do the follow the pen test, the alphabet test, one leg stand, heal to toe, walk and turn, finger to nose, feet together ­eyes closed ­ head back, or any other type "field sobriety test" offered to you by a police officer. And, unlike refusing to submit to a breath alcohol test, refusing to submit to a field sobriety test cannot result in the suspension of your driver's license.
