Every year in Arizona, accidents on the roads result in lengthy investigations and even criminal charges for those involved. If the consumption of alcohol is thought to have contributed to the incident, there may be accusations of drunk driving and the potential for heavy penalties if convicted. In order to cut down on such incidents, many states have DUI checkpoints at which drivers are expected to stop to be checked out. Ignoring such checkpoints can often have serious consequences.
