Drunk Driving is a Felony in Arizona
Under Arizona DUI laws, it is against the law for any person who is under the influence of intoxicating liquor or any drugs to drive a car or be in actual physical control of any vehicle. Applying for a driver’s license in Arizona includes giving consent to testing for your blood alcohol concentration or drug content (BADC) when you are arrested for driving while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs (DUI). Through this informed consent law, officers in Arizona can request that you submit a BADC test of your blood, breath, urine, or other substance to measure the amount of drugs or alcohol in your bloodstream.
Refusing to submit to a BADC test leads to an automatic arrest for DUI, the loss of your driving privilege for 12 months, and the requirement that you complete alcohol or drug screening prior to obtaining a restricted permit to reinstate your license. Losing your license can severely impact your ability to live your life and get to work, and should not be taken lightly.
