Casa Grande DUI Attorney
Casa Grande Attorney Protecting Your Driving Record
In the state of Arizona, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle while your blood alcohol content (BAC) is at or above the legal limit of 0.08%. If you are arrested and charged with the crime of DUI, then you could face extremely harsh penalties. A first conviction will incur penalties of up to 10 days in jail, up to nearly $1,500 in fines, driver's license suspension for up to 1 year, and mandatory ignition interlock device (IID) installation. An IID acts like a breathalyzer; it will measure your BAC and prevent your vehicle from starting if you exhale an unacceptable reading of 0.08% or higher.
If a police officer is following you and suspects that you are driving while intoxicated, then they may pull you over and request that you perform certain field sobriety tests. It is important for you to know that these are not pass-or-fail tests; these are only designed to gather enough evidence to warrant an arrest. Additionally, you are not legally required to consent to and perform these tests. Consequently, it is in your best interest to refuse to perform these tests as you cannot be penalized for refusal. If an officer does not have enough evidence to warrant an arrest, then they cannot penalize you in any way.
