  • 2. 

    The "illegal per se" law makes it an offense to operate a vehicle while _________

    • A.

      Having a statutorily prohibited blood alcohol content

    • B.

      Under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs

    • C.

      Impaired by alcohol or drugs to the slightest degree

    • D.

      Having consumed any alcohol (if the operator is a minor)

    Correct Answer
    A. Having a statutorily prohibited blood alcohol content
    Explanation
    The "illegal per se" law makes it an offense to operate a vehicle while having a statutorily prohibited blood alcohol content. This means that if a person's blood alcohol content exceeds the legal limit set by the statute, they are automatically considered to be in violation of the law, regardless of whether they are actually impaired or under the influence of alcohol or drugs. This law focuses solely on the blood alcohol content level and does not require proof of impairment.

    Correct Answer
    B. Divides the subject's attention
    Explanation
    A good, structured field sobriety test is simple and divides the subject's attention. Dividing the subject's attention is important because it helps assess their ability to multitask and perform different tasks simultaneously. By dividing their attention, the test can evaluate their coordination, balance, and cognitive abilities, which are all crucial indicators of sobriety.

    Explanation
    During the one leg stand test, the subject is instructed to count out loud until they are told to stop. This instruction is given to ensure that the subject maintains their focus and concentration during the test. By counting out loud, it helps the subject to stay engaged and avoid any distractions that may affect their balance or performance. It also allows the test administrator to monitor the subject's ability to follow instructions accurately.

      Walk and turn

    • D.

      Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus

    Correct Answer
    B. Modified Romberg Balance
    Explanation
    The Modified Romberg Balance is not a validated field sobriety test. The other three options, the One leg stand, Walk and turn, and Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus, are all recognized and validated field sobriety tests used by law enforcement to assess a person's level of impairment due to alcohol or drugs. The Modified Romberg Balance, however, is not widely accepted or recognized as a standard field sobriety test.

    Rate this question:

    • D.

      Should I instruct the driver to exit the vehicle

    Correct Answer
    A. Do I have sufficient grounds to stop this vehicle
    Explanation
    In the detection phase one, the police officer's main decision is to determine whether they have sufficient grounds to stop the vehicle. This decision is crucial as it determines whether the officer can proceed with further actions such as requesting a chemical test or instructing the driver to exit the vehicle. Without sufficient grounds to stop the vehicle, the officer may not have the authority to take any further actions.

    Explanation
    Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (HGN) is one of the standardized field sobriety tests used by law enforcement to detect impairment. There are six validated clues for Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus:
    Lack of Smooth Pursuit: Inability to smoothly track a moving object.
    Distinct and Sustained Nystagmus at Maximum Deviation: Involuntary jerking of the eyes at maximum deviation.
    Onset of Nystagmus Prior to 45 Degrees: Nystagmus occurs before the eyes move 45 degrees to the side.
    These clues are observed in both eyes, resulting in a total of six clues. The presence of these clues may indicate impairment due to alcohol or drugs.

It involves checking the eyes for equal pupil size, resting nystagmus, and equal tracking. These assessments are important in determining any impairment or abnormality related to eye movements, which can be indicative of certain medical conditions or impairments.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    How many validated clues are there for HGN testing?

    • A.

      2

    • B.

      3

    • C.

      4

    • D.

      6

    Correct Answer
    B. 3
    Explanation
    There are three validated clues for HGN testing.
    In the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (HGN) test, there are six possible clues that can be assessed. However, not all six clues are necessarily present in every case, and law enforcement officers typically look for three validated clues to determine impairment accurately. These three clues are the most reliable indicators of impairment in the HGN test. So, while there are six possible clues, the three validated clues are the most significant indicators of impairment.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Which one of the following is NOT one of the three clues in the HGN test?

    • A.

      Lack of smooth pursuit

    • B.

      Distinct and sustained nystagmus at maximum devieation

    • C.

      Distinct and disstained nystagmus at maximum deviation

    • D.

      Onset of nystagmus prior to 45 degrees

    Correct Answer
    C. Distinct and disstained nystagmus at maximum deviation
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "distinct and disstained nystagmus at maximum deviation". The HGN test, also known as the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test, is a field sobriety test used to detect impairment due to alcohol or drugs. The three clues in the HGN test are lack of smooth pursuit, distinct and sustained nystagmus at maximum deviation, and onset of nystagmus prior to 45 degrees. The answer choice "distinct and disstained nystagmus at maximum deviation" is not one of the three clues in the HGN test.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    The walk and turn test is an example of ___________

    • A.

      How to know when someone is intoxicated

    • B.

      A good party trick

    • C.

      Can only be done with their eyes closed

    • D.

      A divided attention test

    Correct Answer
    D. A divided attention test
    Explanation
    The walk and turn test is an example of a divided attention test. This test requires individuals to simultaneously perform physical movements, such as walking in a straight line, while also following verbal instructions. By dividing their attention between these two tasks, it becomes more difficult for someone who is intoxicated to successfully complete the test. Therefore, the walk and turn test is commonly used by law enforcement as a means to assess a person's level of intoxication.
