The Modified Romberg Balance Test and Medical Journals

A medical study noted that if performed in the correct setting by a trained medical professional, there are no known complications for the Romberg balance test. Police officers are not trained medical professionals, and sobriety tests administered on the side of the road usually take place in the dark and with external factors such as wind and blasts of air from passing vehicles. Steven Oberman and Robert Reiff explain why they are not fans of the Romberg field sobriety exercise.
