ANSWER:

If you have given a police officer reasonable suspicion to pull you over for DUI, you need to cooperate by providing the officer with your driver’s license and basic information. You shouldn’t admit to drinking, or coming from or going to a bar. You don’t need to agree to a preliminary breath test (PBT) or field sobriety testing (walking in a straight line, standing on one foot, horizontal gaze nystagmus.) However, refusing a breathalyzer test will result in an automatic driver’s license suspension.

ANSWER:

DUI stands for Driving Under the Influence. While typically associated with drunk driving, you can receive a DUI for driving after using drugs, even prescription drugs, that impair your driving ability. A DUI is an extremely serious arrest in Mesa, and can result in jail time, license suspension or revocation, fines, and additional penalties if convicted.

ANSWER:

BAC stands for Blood Alcohol Content, and is the measure used to determine if you are intoxicated. Your BAC can be measured with a breathalyzer test, urine test, or blood test.

CONTACT AN EXPERIENCED MESA DUI ATTORNEY

ANSWER:

If your BAC is .08 or higher, you will be presumed to be intoxicated. However, in Arizona, you can be arrested for DUI to the slightest degree if you have a BAC between .04 and .079. A driver under 21 can be arrested for any amount of alcohol in their system.

ANSWER:

Your charges will be increased if you are arrested with especially high BAC levels. For a BAC between .15 and .199, you will be charged with Extreme DUI. The penalties, including jail time, fines, and license suspension, will be increased for an Extreme DUI charge.

CONTACT AN EXPERIENCED MESA DUI ATTORNEY

ANSWER:

Your penalties will be further increased if your BAC is .20 or higher when you are arrested. This is called a Super Extreme DUI to represent the severity of your intoxication.

ANSWER:

Unless you intend to plead guilty and accept potentially receiving the harshest penalties the judge can order, you should have a criminal defense attorney to represent you in your DUI. You can either use a public defender or hire a private defense attorney. If you want to fight the charges against you or plea bargain for charges that don’t require jail time, you should at least consult with a private defense attorney to learn about the realistic outcomes of your case and receive pricing.

ANSWER:

Some states may treat a DUI as a slap on the wrist. This isn’t the case in Arizona, where the DUI laws are stricter than any other state. Even a first time offense comes with mandatory jail time. Your fines and other penalties will cost you thousands, and your DUI will remain on your record for life. The cost of an attorney may end up saving you far more in the long run.

ANSWER:

There are several types of driver’s license restrictions you may face after a DUI conviction in Mesa. Your driver’s license may be suspended, or even revoked, after multiple DUI convictions. You may have restrictions on your license when you get it back, such as only being able to drive to school and work or during certain hours. You will need to complete driving school and pay fees to get your license back. You will also need to install an ignition interlock device (IID) in your vehicle. This is installed in your ignition, and you must blow into it to prove your sobriety each time you start your vehicle. Also, you may need to pay an installation fee, and every IID comes with a monthly fee that ranges from $75-$150.

ANSWER:

A breathalyzer is the device the police officer will use to measure your BAC if you are pulled over for suspicion of DUI. You will blow into the device, which will measure particles in your breath to give the officer a BAC reading. The officer may have you blow into it a few times to be sure. Unlike field sobriety tests, you can’t refuse a breathalyzer test without serious consequences. In Arizona, refusing a breathalyzer test means an automatic one year driver’s license suspension. You will need to fight this at a separate administrative hearing at the DMV.

ANSWER:

You will face additional penalties besides the restrictions on your driver’s license after a DUI conviction. Every DUI conviction in Arizona comes with mandatory jail time, including a first time low level DUI. Jail sentencing will increase with a higher BAC and multiple arrests. DUI fines in Arizona are in the thousands, and you will have thousands of dollars of other extra costs for your DUI. In addition to driving school, you will need to complete drug and alcohol screening and counseling and community service. The DUI will stay on your record for life, and may even make it impossible for you to obtain professional licensure.
