Need An Injury Attorney Arizona – DUI
Arizona breaks down DUI charges into three categories. There is a Standard DUI where the driver has a BAC greater than 0.08%, or 0.04% for commercial drivers, or any level of BAC for drivers under 21 years of age. An Extreme DUI where the driver has a BAC over 0.15%. And an Aggravated DUI whereby the driver is being charged with a third DUI within 4 years, has a child under the age of 15 as a passenger in the car, or is driving under the influence on a suspended, canceled, or revoked license. Each type of DUI comes various punishments. It is important to know that you can still be under the legal limit but face charges and punishments if the arresting officer thinks you are driving erratically and the judge agrees.
While a DUI is not an intentional crime, it can still come with severe punishments. Even first-time offenders of standard DUI’s face a possible jail time of 10 days. The fines alone exceed $1,250 and more than double on the 2nd offense.
