The point of traffic rules is to keep road users safe, but every driver is capable of making a mistake. Many times traffic offenses such as a DUI result in state authorities suspending your driver’s license as punishment. So how do you deal with license suspension?
A general perception of drunk driving charges is that they inevitably result in convictions. People may ask, “How, after all, can you argue with a blood test or a breath test?” Or, “There you are, on camera, flubbing your field sobriety test; how can you argue against a drunk driving conviction?”
It is no secret that Arizona has some of the toughest laws in the nation when it comes to charges of driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
