The One Leg Stand (OLS) Test is common in NJ DUI stops. In this test, you are instructed to stand with one foot approximately six inches off the ground and count aloud by thousands (i.e. One thousand-one, one thousand-two, etc.) for 30 seconds and you are told to put your foot down. During this time the officer looks for four indicators of impairment, including

  • swaying while balancing
  • using arms to balance
  • hopping to maintain balance, and
  • putting your foot down.

Research done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicates that 83 percent of individuals who exhibit two or more such indicators in the performance of the test will have a BAC of 0.08% or greater.
