It is against the law in Arizona to operate a motor vehicle (or an aircraft or watercraft), or be in actual physical control (APC) of a vehicle, while impaired due to the influence of alcohol, drugs, or drug metabolites. Law enforcement may stop a vehicle if the driver is unable to stay in a traffic lane or exhibits any erratic driving.

When officers begin speaking to a suspicious driver they are observing behavior and checking the inside of the car for minor occupants, open containers or controlled substances. The driver may be asked to submit to field sobriety tests for evidence of intoxication. The test consists of a variety of physical coordination tests. If officers feel it is necessary after these tests they will ask the driver to submit to a breathalyzer, blood test, or urine test to determine the level of alcohol in the blood.

A driver who measures a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 or more within two hours of driving will be arrested and charged with a DUI offense. A driver who refuses to submit to a test will face an automatic one-year license suspension under Arizona law Before making statements to the authorities, you need to find a lawyer for your DUI case in Tempe.
