Will you have to be breathalyzed? What penalties will you face? What rights do you have? How strict is Arizona DUI law? Will a criminal defense attorney help?
To help clear the air, our Arizona criminal defense team is answering all those questions (and more!) in today’s blog post. Stay tuned for the answers to the most common FAQs: Arizona DUI laws.
What Are the Arizona DUI Laws?
Arizona DUI laws are some of the toughest in the nation. However, the Arizona Revised Statutes do differentiate between different kinds of DUIs: standard, extreme, and aggravated. The type of DUI you’re charged with determines whether you’re convicted of a misdemeanor or felony:
- DUI. In Arizona, you’re charged with a DUI when you’re caught operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% (or higher) or any amount of illegal drug in your system.
- Extreme DUI. People are charged with extreme DUIs when caught operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.15% or more.
Aggravated DUI. You can be charged with an aggravated DUI if you’re caught operating a vehicle while your license is revoked or suspended; if you’ve been previously convicted of two or more DUIs in the last seven years; if there’s a passenger under 15 in the vehicle with you; or if you’re driving on the wrong side of the highway.
What Happens After a First-Time DUI?
After being convicted of a first-time DUI in Arizona, you are sentenced to ten consecutive days in jail (without probation), up to $2,500 in fines, community service, and successfully completing a traffic survival course. Suppose your DUI conviction was from alcohol intoxication (instead of drugs). In that case, you’re required to install a certified ignition interlock device in any vehicle that you operate for the next year (at least).
Can I Refuse a Blood or Breath Test?
Arizona law maintains an implied consent provision. Essentially, this assumes that all motorists consent to a chemical test when stopped for a suspected DUI. If you refuse to take either of the chemical tests, your license could be suspended for a year. And if you refuse a chemical test for the second time within seven years, your license is suspended for at least two years.
