Arizona has a strict no-tolerance policy for the legal driving limits under the influence of alcohol. This means that you can get arrested for driving with a blood-alcohol content higher than 0.08 percent. Let’s take a closer look.
If you are pulled over and consequently arrested for driving under the influence you can face heavy fines, required counseling, the suspension of your driver’s license, community service, and jail time. The severity of the consequences here in Arizona depends on how often you’ve been pulled over for driving under the influence, and how much you’ve had to drink.
Look, we get it. Drinking is fun, and we aren’t ones to harp on you for a glass of wine, a beer, or whatever your choice of drink is. But it is unsafe to drive when you’ve been drinking, and illegal. So, if you plan on going out, make sure you have a way to get back safely, whether that’s a designated driver or a taxi. Likewise, if you’ve been drinking while at home, then stay at home until the alcohol is out of your system.
