Dispelling the Myth: The Real Consequences of a Motorcycle DWI in Arizona

There seems to be a perpetual myth - not only in Arizona but in most other states as well - regarding the severity of DWI/DUI laws and the penalties for operating a motorcycle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. This confusion could be related at least in part to the fact that, even in Arizona, motorcycles are vastly outnumbered on the roads by automobiles. Statistically, they are involved in far fewer DWI arrests. This seems to have fed the growth of a misconception that the laws governing motorcycle DWIs and the penalties for being arrested are not as harsh as the laws applying to automobile drivers - as well as the mistaken assumption that there is less likelihood of being stopped or arrested for DWI on a motorcycle.

Arizona DUI: 'Did I tell the police too much?'

tell the police-T.JPGMany people become despondent when they go home after an AZ DUI arrest and start googling.

5 Reasons teenagers have a higher risk for DUI accidents

Being a teenager comes with a lot of new responsibilities, life lessons and getting a feel for how the real world works. Grasping reality and the serious consequences of certain actions is difficult because most teenagers are still living at home under the rules of their parent(s) or guardian(s) and don't understand the real-life battle that comes with facing a serious offense. How can they understand the effects a DUI can have on their future when they're only just beginning to grow into their adult self?

How to remember the important first step following a DUI arrest

There may have been a time when a driver who faced a drunk driving charge could navigate the criminal justice system without a lawyer, but those days are long gone. The penalties in Arizona even for a first-time offense of driving under the influence (DUI) of liquor or drugs are among the harshest in the United States.

What factors can exacerbate DUI charges?

When you are found to be over the legal limit while driving, you already know the consequences could be severe. Throughout Arizona, countless drivers face serious penalties every year in relation to DUI charges. Unfortunately, you only need to be caught once for your entire life to be turned upside down. Suddenly, you are being subjected to a potentially lengthy criminal investigation, with the threat of conviction hanging over you.

Arizona man secures reduced sentence

It is not uncommon for drivers in Arizona to be intercepted on suspicion of drunk driving. The slightest mistake can make your driving appear erratic and may cause officers to suspect that your driving may be impaired. As a result, you might be Breathalyzed or even asked to submit to a number of field sobriety tests. However, these tests are often quite accurate, so if you have not been drinking, you are likely to be fine.

Stopping for no reason could raise DUI suspicions

No matter how experienced you are as a driver, everyone has bad days or days when they are simply not as alert as they should be. Unfortunately, as many drivers in Arizona have learned, this can be very dangerous and may have serious consequences. It only takes a single mistake to lead to disaster. As such, the authorities are constantly on the look out for signs of erratic or unusual driving on the roads.
