Should I agree to take Field Sobriety Tests in New Mexico?

You are not required by law to take field sobriety tests, and many of the tests are extremely difficult even for people who have not been drinking. It is therefore adviseable to politely refuse an officer's request for field sobriety tests. You should make it clear, however, that you are only refusing the field sobriety tests and not refusing to take a breath or blood test.
