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

Zero tolerance laws apply in Arizona

Many people in Arizona have been pulled over at one time or another. Everyone makes mistakes behind the wheel and there is a chance that such a mistake could cause an officer witnessing it to suspect that you are suffering from alcohol impairment. However, if you submit to and pass a breath test and other sobriety tests, there is a chance that you could get away with no further trouble.

On the other hand, if you are found to be over the limit, you could face serious criminal charges. This is even more the case if you are below the age of 21, as you are also below the legal drinking age. Worse still, a conviction could affect many aspects of your future.

As this article on drunk driving mentions, in Arizona, having even a small amount of alcohol in your system can get you into trouble if you decide to drive. This is because Arizona is one of a number of states that have zero tolerance laws in place. This means that you could be charged with a DUI even if you are far below the standard legal limit of 0.08 percent.

This could have a huge impact on your future, so it is vital to act quickly if you have been charged with underage drunk driving. An attorney may be able to advise you about how best to proceed and might also be willing to help you build your defense and prepare for your trial. With this guidance, you can focus on ensuring that the court hears your side of the story as you work to escape conviction and protect your future.
