Arizona’s Cracking Down on Drunk Driving: What You Need to Know

Last updated 7 years ago

Drunk driving is a fast way to get yourself into a lot of trouble. Arizona police have been more diligent than ever about finding and fining drivers under the influence. Don’t let yourself become a statistic. Know the facts before you find yourself in need of a DUI defense lawyer.

What you don’t have to do when pulled over for drunk driving

The legal blood alcohol limit in Arizona is 0.8%. What most people aren’t aware of is that if you are pulled over and asked to take a test to prove you are intoxicated you do not legally have to agree to the tests. You also do not have to let a police officer search your vehicle without a search warrant. It’s important to know your rights before you need to put them to use. Ask your criminal defense law firm for details today.

What you will need if you are cited for drunk driving

Arizona is not lenient on drunk driving. It is advisable not to drive if you are even slightly intoxicated. There is no need to give the police a reason to search your vehicle or to have to prove that you are not driving drunk. If it happens to you, you will find yourself in need of a criminal attorney. Getting a DUI offense in Arizona means paying a lot of money in drunk driving and attorney’s fees, possible jail time, as well as suspension of your license. None of these consequences are worth that last drink.

Why drunk driving isn’t worth the risk

Driving drunk puts you and others at risk. You might find yourself in trouble with family law attorneys or personal injury lawyers if you cause an accident while driving drunk. In the end, driving drunk to save your pride or your money is not worth it. If you have been drinking, then let someone else drive, or call a cab. Do not put yourself at risk for the consequences of driving drunk.
