To help them gather the timely evidence they need when police officers suspect someone is driving under the influence of alcohol, they often administer field sobriety tests and Breathalyzer tests to determine if drivers are intoxicated. Field sobriety tests are often difficult, consisting of tasks many drivers could not complete even when sober. Being stopped by the police can be an intimidating experience and nervousness can often be misinterpreted as intoxication.

Idaho police have begun using mobile Breathalyzers, allowing them to accurately test suspected drunk drivers on the side of the road. Refusal to take the test could lead to a fine of $250 and seizure of his or her driver's license for a minimum of one year absolute. If you refuse a Breathalyzer test, in certain serious situations, police are permitted to draw your blood against your will for BAC testing.
