25 Questions 

When I see cop shows on TV, I always see them checking a DUI suspect's eyes. What are they looking for?

One of the signs of higher blood alcohol content that cannot be masked or prevented is nystagmus. This is an oscillating or vibrating movement of the eye which tends to occur in gazing to the right or left. If someone is particularly inebriated he or she may have nystagmus looking straight ahead. You can’t hide involuntary eye movements.
