Mike Nichols is NHTSA-certified in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing for OWI-investigations

By Michael Nichols
Categories: Michael J. Nichols, OWI

Mike Nichols is certified in Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs) after he attended a 24-hour course and passed a proficiency exam. “It was fascinating to administer the SFSTs on our intoxicated subjects” said Nichols. He added: “I have a much better understanding for how difficult the tests are for both the subject being tested and the officer administering the test. Hence, if the officer is not careful, cautious and patient the test can easily end up as an invalid indicator of intoxication; and that is no better than flipping a coin when deciding whether to arrest someone.”
