The nystagmus test is a test that will let us know that if we see certain -- the four clues that they are over a .08, yes, sir. Q. And it has nothing to do with driving; would you agree? A. Correct. It's not a driving factor, no, sir. Q. And would you agree that the NHTSA manual states that the one-leg stand test is only 68 percent accurate taken alone? A. I'm sure it's close to that number. I don't have the exact number in my head, as far as the technicalities on the numbers. Q. Okay. Do you work under a quota system? A. It's not necessarily a quota. We have been under some pressure here recently through the changes of our chain of command from higher up that they are asking us to try to go out there and get two DWI's a night. It's not a quota. It's called a number that we're trying to reach. MR. BURROWS: Pass the witness. THE COURT: Any redirect?
