Arizona DUI laws are fairly strict due to preventative measures that authorities and lawmakers attempt to enforce. With many alcohol related deaths and DUI accidents, authorities are cracking down on drivers they suspect are driving under the influence. The blood alcohol content or BAC for a DUI in Arizona is .08% for adults over 21. If you are pulled over having a BAC over 0.8%, you will be arrested and charged with a DUI. Refusal of a chemical test can also subject you to a fine and an automatic suspension of your license, however you do reserve the right to speak to a lawyer before submitting a chemical test. It is important to remember if you are arrested that the less you say or do, the less evidence a officer has against your case.
