Underage Drinking Archives

Underage drinking can lead to life-changing penalties

In Arizona, the legal age for the consumption of alcohol is 21. As such, young drivers need to be especially careful if they intend to get behind the wheel of a car when they have been drinking. This is because many states carry a zero tolerance policy when it comes to the blood alcohol content of drivers under the legal drinking age. As a result, if you are stopped with any alcohol in your system while driving, you could face criminal charges.

What is the legal BAC limit for young drivers?

In Arizona, drunk driving is taken extremely seriously. As such, the associated penalties for being caught intoxicated behind the wheel of a vehicle can be extremely harsh. This is no less the case for young drivers. In fact, the restrictions on drivers under the legal drinking age are in many ways far tougher than those imposed on adults.

How does age affect DUI charges?

As many drivers in Arizona will know, being charged with drunk driving is a very serious matter. In general, the legal limit is 0.08 percent. If your blood alcohol concentration is under this number, then the chances are that you will not be charged. However, this is only the case if you are aged 21 or over. Any younger than that and you are below the legal drinking age.
