Arizona law requires that any person convicted of a DUI have an ignition interlock installed on his or her vehicle. These devices help discourage drunk driving by requiring drivers to blow into a device before they can access the ignition.
Trucking is an in-demand industry. Thanks to shortages in long-haul trucking drivers, companies are promising everything from signing bonuses to high hourly wages in exchange for a contract. This makes getting a commercial driver’s license (CDL) an enticing prospect. Commercial truck driving can lead to a good career, but first drivers must get their CDL by passing an exam.
Texting and driving have a notable effect on public health. In 2016, 3,450 people lost their lives due to distracted driving behaviors, according to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This has led many states to take steps to limit and control the practice by passing texting and driving bans.
The minimum legal drinking age in the U.S. for all states, including Arizona, is 21. Those who drink under this age limit may face charges such as a minor in possession (MIP), or other civil and criminal penalties. Most people, though, are unaware of the reasoning or research associated with the establishment of this age requirement.
Drunk driving and drowsy driving can share similar characteristics, especially to the casual observer. In fact, driving after 24 hours of wakefulness is the equivalent of driving with a .10 blood alcohol content (BAC), according to the National Sleep Foundation.
