Arizona DWI Laws 


Tough penalties are imposed by Arizona laws for many crimes ranging from dwi to dangerous crimes done with weapons. This action is done to reduce down the cases from drunken driving. The laws of Arizona dui are somewhat similar to that of the Arkansas dui laws. According to the Arizona dui laws it is illegal to drive under the influence of alcohol, drugs and a combination of both even to the slightest degree. If you are the resident of Arizona and has been caught for dwi you will have to undergo BAC test which has a legal limit of 0.08 %.

Arizona dwi arrest can lead you in 2 cases:
In case you have been arrested under Arizona dwi, you will have to undergo through two separate proceedings. The first one is the criminal proceeding for DWI offence which will be carried in the courtroom and the other one is the civil proceeding which will determine whether you are entitled to license or not. The hearing of this will be done by Arizona Department of Motor Vehicles.

Effect on driving license after dwi arrest:

If the BAC results shows 0.08% or higher the cops will seize you’re driving license and provide you a temporary license which is valid up to 15 days. At the time of these days you can request for additional temporary license for working purpose. If you are from out of the state and arrested in Arizona, cops does not have the right to seize your license but will give you a notice of suspension of your privilege to drive in Arizona.
