Don't let the NCAA Championship steal the win with a DUI

by Aaron Black • March 27, 2016
With the NCAA Championships winding down to the Final Four, the furor is mounting and the fun's beginning! While making plans to watch history in the making remember to also make plans to get home safely. I strongly encourage you to take a cab, designate a driver or Uber your way to and from your destination to root your team on.

With increased patrols out looking for drivers under the influence that didn't make safe driving plans, heed caution as Phoenix is enforcing some of the harshest penalties for DUI's in the country, I strongly recommend that you plan for your sake and the sake of others.

Even being “impaired to the slightest degree” in Maricopa County can lead you to jail, numerous fines, license suspension and a 1 year ignition interlock being placed on your vehicle.

Did you know that even if you have never had a DUI, if convicted you will have to install the ignition interlock anywhere from 6 months to 18 months. 

1st Time DUI

  • If you have been convicted of first time DUI under a .15 the ignition interlock must be installed for 12 months. This can be reduced to 6 months.
  • A DUI conviction over a .15 and below a .20 requires the ignition interlock for a minimum of 12 months.
  • A Super Extreme DUI conviction, over a .20, requires the ignition interlock for 18 months.

2nd Time DUI Within 84 Months (after a 1 year license revocation)

  • DUI conviction under a .15 the ignition interlock must be installed for 12 month.
  • DUI conviction over a .15 and below a .20 requires the ignition interlock for a minimum of 12 months.
  • A Super Extreme DUI conviction, over a .20, requires the ignition interlock for a minimum of 2 years.
If however you find yourself facing DUI charges, I strongly recommend hiring an attorney that is experienced in all facets of defending you against the drinking and driving charges.
