Scenario: An Officer pulls over a vehicle for traveling 65 in a 55 mile per hour zone. The officer suspects the driver is impaired and administers field sobriety tests and a PBT, which results in a reading of .00. The officer then tells the driver that the next roadside test is an oral fluid test for drugs called SoToxa. When the driver says he has never heard of a roadside drug test, the officer replies that Indiana law enforcement now has about 70 saliva drug test instruments in the state.
