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

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.

Often, if someone is driving in a dangerous or strange manner, it can be a sign that they are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. However, there are other factors that can cause someone to drive erratically. For example, they may be suffering from medical difficulties, such as a seizure or blurred vision, or something may have gone wrong with their vehicle.

As this article on drunk driving explains, there are many reasons an officer might decide to pull you over. Under law, they are only allowed to do so if there is reason for them to suspect that your driving may be impaired. However, there are several habits that can fall into this category, including the following:

● Making illegal turns.

● Driving particularly slowly or stopping for no obvious reason.

● Drifting between lanes or driving along the centerline.

● Coming close to hitting other vehicles.

If you have been accused of drunk driving, or are facing any related charges, a good defense is critical. However, it can be difficult to navigate the legal process when you are worrying about your future. Fortunately, an attorney may be able to assist you and offer the advice you require as you work to protect your reputation and avoid conviction.
