+ DUIs in Arizona

Understanding the laws specific to Arizona and driving under the influence is important for any motorist. The state takes DUI laws very seriously. Too many Phoenix drivers claim that their first DUI was the first time that they ever operated a vehicle while impaired. While this may be true, the ramifications associated with a DUI in Arizona can become permanent charges on your record.

For those drivers under the age of 21, there is a zero tolerance policy for blood alcohol content (BAC). Drivers 21 or older must be below .08 percent BAC and commercial motorists must be below .04 percent. In addition, there are varied levels of legal consequences depending upon the number of DUI offenses have occurred. Visit our Arizona DUI penalties section to learn more.

+ Driving Under the Influence Consequences

Arizona drivers often think that they can operate a motor vehicle if they have only had a drink or two. However, driving under the influence of even one or two drinks, especially while operating a motorcycle, can have incredibly damaging effects on the body.

Some of the most dangerous effects of driving under the influence are:

  • Sudden decrease in concentration
  • Blurred vision
  • Altered perceptions
  • Brains capacity to process information is reduced
  • Increases in drowsiness
  • Diminished eye-hand-foot coordination

Driving a motorcycle after just a few drinks can be the difference between life and death. If you or a loved one has been injured by a drunk driver, a Phoenix DUI attorney is here to help.

    Motorcycles and DUIs

    In Arizona, any combination of drugs, liquor, or vapor releasing substances are considered illegal if the person is impaired even marginally. In 2010, 193 impaired driving fatalities occurred in Arizona alone. With 71.7 percent of those impairments involving a BAC higher than .15, motorists need to exercise an elevated level of caution while on the roadways.

    As a motorcycle driver, the likelihood of an accident, as well as the probability of severity, is increased significantly. In 2010, 4,629 motorcyclists were involved in fatal crashes. Of all of the motor vehicle crashes involving an alcohol-related fatality, motorcycle riders accounted for 28 percent of that total. This percentage marked the highest amongst all vehicle types.

    A motorcycle DUI is more likely to lead to an accident because of the limited visibility associated with bikers. On top of that, the majority of DUI collisions occur at night, making motorcycle visibility even worse.

    In Arizona, a motorcycle DUI is a serious offense. Police officers can pull over a motorcycle driver for dangerous actions such as:

    • Unsafe lane changing
    • Swerving
    • Excessive speeding
    • Improper signaling
    • Peeling out (spinning wheels)
    • Any type of showboating, such as wheelies

    All of the above behaviors are red flags for patrolling officers all across the state of Arizona. If you have witnessed a motorcycle driver who is displaying any of these dangerous actions, safely pull to the right-most lane away from the driver.

    Once in a safe location, call of the local highway patrol or police department to inform them of the unsafe biker. If possible, jot down the license plate number and inform the authorities that drunk driving is suspected.
