Arizona Supreme Court decision means big changes for DUI stops

When officers in Arizona stop a motorist that they suspect is under the influence of alcohol, they perform an investigation to uncover as much evidence as possible to support an arrest. Once arrested, the officer will want to conduct a test that helps establish the individual's blood-alcohol content (BAC).

Major March events mean more police looking for drunk drivers

Next week will be an extremely busy week for bars throughout the Phoenix metro area. Two important events will fall during the week, and this will result in an increase in police presence throughout the region. Thursday, March 17th, is St. Patrick's Day, and it is also the first day of the first round of the college basketball national championship tournament.

Refusing a breath test can sometimes be beneficial

For many drivers in Arizona, the thought of being pulled over by police is a daunting one. Even if you have done nothing wrong, it can be distressing to be investigated. Furthermore, you may be asked to undergo several tests that could potentially incriminate you, leaving you faced with drunk driving charges. Of course, if you are not under the influence of alcohol, the chances are that you will be fine. However these tests are not always accurate.

Do you have to submit to a breath test?

If you are stopped on suspicion of drunk driving, there is a good chance that you will be asked to submit to a Breathalyzer test. Concerns about incrimination, either through fear of a false reading or knowledge that they are over the limit, encourage some people to refuse these tests. However, as we have discussed previously, it is not always the best idea and can still lead to charges. It is important to weigh up the potential consequences before choosing this option.
