While Arizonans are busy celebrating Cinco de Mayo with festivities, food and drinks, Arizona’s police force will be on the lookout for revelers who choose to get behind the wheel and drive home after too many margaritas.
Last year, more than 1,200 police officers and deputies participated in the DUI Task Force during Cinco de Mayo weekend to ensure everyone was driving home safely, and sober. Of the 6,500 traffic stops that were conducted, 460 people were arrested for DUI, including 148 extreme DUIs.
These statistics demonstrate that Arizona DUI laws are not to be taken lightly. Arizona is one of the toughest states on DUIs. Penalties include mandatory jail time, license suspension and significant fines even for a first offense. Having an experienced Arizona DUI defense attorney on your side could make a huge difference in your case, according to the Scottsdale law firm Corso Law Group.
“Arizona DUI convictions could mean jail time for more than 10 days, a minimum fine of $1,250, installation of a certified ignition interlock device and more,” said Christopher Corso. “DUIs are not only dangerous but extremely expensive, which makes having an experienced DUI defense attorney imperative.”
Corso are former Maricopa County prosecutors with plenty of Arizona DUI expereince. Together, they have more than 15,000 DUI cases under their belt, making them an excellent choice when it comes to Arizona DUI defense.
