Regardless of whether you are over the legal limit, having any alcohol and driving in Arizona when you are a minor can lead to serious consequences like:
Loss of your driver’s license for two years
A conviction on your criminal record that cannot be expunged
Issues obtaining licenses, passing background checks, qualifying for loans, and being admitted to college
What is an Underage DUI in Avondale City Court
Arizona Revised Statutes § 4-244(34) makes it a crime to drive a car with any alcohol in your system if you are a minor. Having a blood alcohol concentration, or BAC, of less than the legal limit, 0.08, is not a defense to this crime.
