Many people are well aware that driving under the influence of alcohol can result in a DUI criminal charge. Did you, know that you can also face serious criminal penalties if you are found to be operating a vehicle while impaired by drugs? While it is a criminal offense to be found impaired and driving with any trace of drug in your system, it does not necessarily need to be an illegal drug. For example, if you take drugs that are legally prescribed to you and then get behind the wheel and a law enforcement office believes that you are impaired, you could also find yourself facing DUI-related charges.
Arizona laws can be harsh and unforgiving when it comes to driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If the police even suspect that you are driving impaired, then they may request a urine or blood test to check for drugs in your system. If you are convicted of a drug DUI, then your driver's license will be revoked and one year must pass before you reapply, you may also be denied access to a work permit.
Obtaining Qualified Legal Representation
If you are arrested for these charges it would benefit you greatly to have an experienced and skilled attorney fighting in your corner. They may be able to have your charges minimized significantly or have them dismissed all together.
