Where were you arrested? A DUI is a state offense, but each jurisdiction handles them slightly differently.

Memorial Day DUI Statistics

Last Friday started Arizona's state wide crackdown on DUI enforcement for the Memorial Day weekend. This crackdown was yet another attempt to enforce Arizona's already strict drinking and driving laws, and to prevent injuries and fatalities due to automobile accidents.

There were best efforts made by police officers and their respected agencies this past weekend, with 1,660 officers from 70 different agencies participating in the task force this year. It was reported by the Arizona Governor's Office of Highway Safety, that law enforcement made more than 13,000 stops starting on May 23 to Tuesday morning. Even though, if one can imagine, that number was the lowest number of stops since the 2010 Memorial Day weekend, there were still nearly 560 people arrested over the holiday weekend.

Some other statistics from the weekend were that officers issued 340 citations for underage drinking and made 148 arrests for Extreme DUI.

Attorney Craig Rosenstein believes that everyone should know their rights. There are many rules at road side checkpoints. If you find yourself in a situation where you are not familiar with the proper procedures, it is in your best interest to speak with a knowledgeable attorney, such as the ones at the Rosenstein Law Group.

We understand that DUI situations are an extremely stressful and agonizing time for anyone. If you have found yourself in this type of situation, please call us at 480-248-7666, so that we can help you move past it. At the Rosenstein Law Group, we feel that one mistake should not influence the rest of your life.
