As the last of the 48 contiguous states to join the union, Arizona in many ways is still thought of as a last representation of the infamous “Wild Wild West.” Despite the modern veneer of civility that comes with the 21st century Arizona’s state laws still represent wildness in many ways. For this reason, residents, visitors and tourist alike should know about some of the more severe Arizona laws. Here is a list of eight very important laws you should know in Arizona:
Lawmakers and public officials in Arizona want to keep you safe and dangerous drivers off the roads. For this reason, authorities are cracking down on drivers they suspect have consumed alcohol before getting behind the wheel of their vehicles. If you are pulled over having a BAC at or over 0.8%, there is a strong possibility that you will be arrested and charged with a DUI. Drivers in Arizona should also be aware that refusal to undergo sobriety testing may result in a fine and the automatic suspension of your driver’s license. If you are stopped, you do have the right to speak to an attorney before submitting to a chemical test. Know your rights! Speak to a lawyer if you have questions.
