DUI and the EYE TEST
After being arrested for DUI in Georgia the officer will ask if they can examine your eyes. This eye test has a fancy name called Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus. In Georgia, most officers are taught how to administer this test; however the test is not as easy as you may think. Even though the officer has been trained the level of training and experience is not enough to ensure a reliable result. Officers are taught how to administer the test in a 24 hours block and if they do not take a refresher course thats all the training the have on it. The test is somewhat complex in that it builds on its self and there are different stages and each stage has a certain number of passes at different speeds.
