Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
DUI Definition – Driving under the influence (DUI), also known as driving while intoxicated (DWI), is the term used for the infraction of operating a vehicle after consuming alcohol or other substances that would impair your ability to drive. The penalties in Northern AZ tend to be more severe, as the state of Arizona has implemented a zero tolerance policy. This means any amount of alcohol on your breath or in your blood stream could merit a penalty if you are behind the wheel.
DUI Penalties – In Flagstaff, Arizona, the Implied Consent Law mandates that anyone accepting a driver’s license must consent to blood alcohol concentration or blood content tests if they are pulled over and believed to have been drinking and driving. If these tests come back positive for alcohol, for a first offense the drunk driver faces up to 24 hours in prison, at least $250 in fines, and a possible driver’s license suspension. Arizona is one of the stricter states for DUI laws, so contacting an attorney after you are pulled over is especially wise.
Possession of Marijuana Law – In Flagstaff, AZ it is illegal to possess marijuana without a medical prescription. The consequences for possession depend on how much marijuana (also known as cannabis) is found on the offender’s person or property. Incarceration times and fines increase with the amount of marijuana present, sometimes resulting in prison sentences of up to three years.
