Commercial drivers can face longer suspensions

Many people in Arizona rely on being able to drive in order to maintain their livelihood. In fact, for some people it is not simply a matter of being able to get to and from work efficiently. In many cases their job itself requires driving. As such, an incident that results in the revocation or suspension of their driver's license can be devastating as it can completely remove their source of income.

Refusing a breath test might not save you from being charged

As most drivers in Arizona know, the legal limit for blood alcohol concentration while operating a vehicle is 0.08 percent. If you are found to be driving with a BAC that is equal to or greater than this, then you may be charged with drunk driving. This in turn could result in the suspension of your license and a lengthy investigative process at the end of which you could face fines or even a prison sentence.

Know where to turn if you lose your license

For drivers in Arizona, it is generally well-known that criminal charges relating to vehicle offenses can be bad news. Aside from the potential fines or even prison sentences that can arise from such charges, a major concern is the possible suspension or revocation of your driver's license. Unfortunately, this can come about in a number of ways.

Drunk driving suspected in fatal rollover accident

For drivers in Arizona, being charged with drunk driving is a serious matter. It can lead to license suspension, fines and even prison time, not to mention the mark it leaves on your record. Furthermore, if your charges arise from a road accident, there is a chance that there could be even more complications. After an accident you may already be shaken and worried about whether anyone has been harmed. Having to face a criminal investigation on top of this can be extremely taxing.

Multiple moving violations can lead to license suspension

As most drivers in Arizona know, it is all too easy to get carried away on the roads. If you are in a hurry to get somewhere, perhaps in the event of an emergency or even if your mind is preoccupied and you lose track of your speed, you could get picked up for a moving violation. Unfortunately, if this happens too often, it could lead to the revocation of your driver's license.

State trooper refuses breath test

On the roads of Arizona, if you are pulled over by police or if you are involved in an accident, there is a chance that you will be investigated for drunk driving. When officers perform these investigations, there are certain procedures they must follow, so it helps to know your rights. One thing they might ask you to do is submit to a Breathalyzer test. However, you are not obliged to do so, although refusal does lead to license suspension.
