Watch Laura Daniels Takes the ‘Romberg Alphabet’ Test, With a Twist [VIDEO]
During the dash-cam video of Tiger Woods' DUI arrest, he's asked to recite the alphabet (not "the National Anthem backwards"...), neither of which he's really able to do.
That request actually has a name: the Romberg Alphabet Test. An attorney explains:
The Romberg Alphabet test during a DUI investigation, administered often in Florida, is to state the alphabet forwards, not backwards, and to do so without singing or using voice inflections/rhyming. It is a non-standard test and despite a large public misconception, is not asked to be recited backwards.
(Here's a REALLY boring, dry, dull explanation of it in video form)
So I gave it a whirl this morning. I found it pretty easy. Granted, I had taken no prescription drugs, had nothing to drink, and it was 8:10am and I was at work.
Naturally, I threw in my own curve ball at the end. Ya know, for extra credit.
