Asked by user in Nebraska.
I got into a small wreck and I didn't have insurance because I was a day late to pay it. I had to do a sobriety test, but the other person wasn't asked to. My skin is brown and I've never had anything on my record.
I’m sorry this happened to you.
Nebraska’s implied consent law means that anyone who operates a motor vehicle implicitly consents to a sobriety test so long as the officer has “reasonable grounds” to believe that the driver has consumed alcohol, commited a moving violation, or been involved in an accident.
In other words, the officer had the legal right to administer a sobriety test. Unfortunately, I can’t speak to why the officer did not administer a sobriety test to the other driver. In some cases, an officer will only administer a test to the driver they believe is responsible for the accident.
