MAJOR CHANGES IN DUI DEFENSE ARE IN EFFECT

The most comprehensive DUI law changes since the 1990's were passed this past legislative session. SB 1200 has completely changed the way a person accused of DUI will be treated within the criminal justice system. This new law that went into effect January 1, 2012 will effect a person's rights, and potential consequences in all aspects of their case. It is unclear, because of how the law was written, which parts will apply to people arrested before that date. Additionally, contrary to internet rumors, not all aspects of this law will benefit those accused of alleged impaired driving. It is extremely important (perhaps now more than ever) to hire a competent DUI lawyer. Otherwise, you could both miss out on benefits in the change in law and be subject to some of negatives that could easily have been avoided.

SB 1200 Is Now in Effect: Arizona DUI Laws Have Changed

Only accountants and lawyers can tinker with things so much and get away with making a process so complicated that you need to hire their services. A shining example of that is Arizona's SB1200. This is the biggest re-write of the Arizona DUI laws since the 1990s, and despite the overly simplistic analysis done by the local Arizona news programs on SB 1200, the law doesn't just affect the required ignition interlock time.

Will the New AZ DUI Law Allow Me to Remove My Ignition Interlock Device Early?

Earlier this year, the Arizona State Legislature passed SB 1200. SB 1200 deals with Arizona DUI enforcement and consequences. One of the most talked about provisions of SB 1200 is the limiting of the mandatory ignition interlock device usage from one year (the current law) to six (6) months on 1st offense non-extreme DUIs in Arizona. This is good news because of the cost and stress often associated with the mandated use of ignition interlock devices, and the questionable science regarding their efficacy.Unfortunately, that provision of the bill will not go into effect until January 1, 2012, and the new rule regarding the ignition interlock device will only be applicable to people arrested for DUI in Arizona in the year 2012 and later.
