you do not have take a "field sobriety tests"
when stopped by the police and they want to
see if your drunk or stoned.

i called the arizona department of public saftey
(highway patrol), phoenix, mesa, tempe, scottsdale,
peoria, gilbert, and chandler police and they
all said that if your stopped by them and
refuse to take their "field sobriety tests" thats
your 5th amendment right and you will NOT lose
your drivers license.

the above 8 police departments ALL said that if 
your stopped by them and refuse to take a breath, 
blood, or urine test that you will automaticlly 
lose your drivers license.

i also called the goons at sheriff joes maricopa
county sheriff department. they were the only
police department that said you HAD to take 
a "field sobriety test". maybe thats because
sheriff joe lives in a different world than
most of us or perhaps the other 9 police
departments were wrong on the issue.

the state law which is in ARS 28-1321 seems
to say that you DONT have to take any "field
sobriety tests". but you must take a blood,
urine, or breath test.

this is the state law that says you have to take
a blood, breath, or urine test when your stopped
by the cops for drunken driving. it specificlly
says "blood, breath, and urine" tests. 

it does not mention the so call "field sobriety 
tests" in which cops tell you to walk in a straight
line and make you perform other stupid tests
to see if your drunk or stoned.
