Keep Arizona Roads Safe: Don’t Drink and Drive

Don’t Be a Liability on the Road

Driving under the influence is a pressing issue that is still a major problem in Arizona. Since Arizona is home to major universities and drinking hotspots, it is important to know limits and what drinking and driving could cost you.

DUI Laws in Arizona

Driving under the influence is never a good idea. You can be incarcerated if you are found to be intoxicated with alcohol readings of 0.08% or higher or if a police officer finds that you are impaired.

First Time Offenders – As a first-time offender, you’d be spending a minimum of 10 days in jail if you’re found to be impaired with a blood-alcohol level of .08% to 0.149% with a fine of at least $1,480 and a license suspension of at least 90 days.
