Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus Field Sobriety Test

The Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus looks at the involuntary jerking that occurs as your eyes move from one side to the other. If correctly administered, the officer will note if your eyes cannot smoothly track a moving object, if jerking is distinct at maximum deviation and if the angle of onset of jerking is within 45 degrees of center.
