Drunk Driving in Arizona

Glendale, AZ - Two Injured When Car Plows into Glendale Apartment Building

In Arizona, it is illegal to operate any type of motor vehicle if your blood-alcohol level is higher than 0.08%. A driver’s BAL should be less than this for at least two hours prior to driving or otherwise being in control of an automobile.

If the driver in question is behind the wheel of a commercial vehicle, like a tractor-trailer, their blood-alcohol level must be under 0.04%.

It is also against Arizona law to drive any kind of motor vehicle, including motorcycles, as well as some mopeds and scooters, if you are impaired. This means, that even if your blood-alcohol level is well below the legal limit of 0.08%, if you are exhibiting signs of impairment, you cannot legally drive. 

By comparison, a personal injury case is handled in a civil court. These claims allow injured victims to seek monetary compensation for the injuries and losses they endured. Should the respondent is ordered to remunerate the victim for their losses, these payments are not the same as court-ordered fines. The purpose of the remuneration is to compensate the victim for the expenses, such as medical bills, they sustained due to the respondent’s negligent or reckless actions, such as driving while under the influence.
