What happens if you refuse to take a chemical test in Peoria?

Technically, driving is a privilege, not a right. Because of this, if you refuse to provide a chemical test of the officer’s choice, you will face a license suspension of one year. If you are unsure what to do, always request to speak with a DUI law specialist.

What level of Blood Alcohol Content determines a DUI in Arizona?

The level of blood alcohol content it takes to get you arrested for a DUI offense in Peoria, as well as everywhere else in the state of Arizona, will depend upon a number of factors, as described below.

  • If you are under the age of 21, the presence of any alcohol in your system can get you arrested. There is a zero tolerance policy in effect for underage drinking and driving (ARS 4-244 34) in the State of Arizona.
  • If you over the age of 21, the legal limit is set at 0.08 BAC.
  • If you are driving a commercial vehicle, such as a tow truck or an 18 wheeler, the legal limit is 0.04 percent.

How long can a Prior DUI Arrest stay on your record in Arizona?

Another fact that a reputable Peoria DUI Lawyer will no doubt alert you to, is that there is a 7 year “look back” in effect in the state of Arizona.
