Though no one should ever drive under the influence, people do make mistakes from time to time. If you have been pulled over for DUI, it is important to know your rights under Arizona’s DUI laws and penalties. It is your right to respectfully and politely refuse a field sobriety test. You may still be required (or it may be in your best interest) to take a breathalyzer or undergo blood or urine testing to determine your blood alcohol level. And, if you have been arrested for DUI, the most important thing to know is that you should not say anything and the first call you make should be to your lawyer. An experienced and knowledgeable DUI attorney can help you navigate the legal system and help you get the best possible outcome. With the help of an attorney, you may be able to avoid a DUI conviction and/or jail time. While state laws vary significantly, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) elaborates on the specific Arizona DUI laws and penalties:
DUI (alcohol concentration of .08 or more)
Arizona is a “no-tolerance” state when it comes to DUIs so it is imperative that if you have been arrested for DUI that you call an experienced DUI attorney immediately. Your attorney may be able to help you get your charges reduced or even completely dismissed.
