Arizona has some of the strictest DUI laws in the country. The consequences can be life altering.
Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) March 30, 2016
High school students can expect increased police presence and tough DUI consequences in Arizona on prom nights, according to the Arizona DUI lawyers at Corso Law Group.
More than 80 percent of teens report that students who drink or use drugs on prom night will drive afterwards, according the National Association of Broadcasters, and every year, more than 350 teenagers die on prom night due to alcohol-related accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In order to combat DUIs and alcohol-related accidents during prom season in Arizona, increased DUI patrols focus on specific locations, according to the East Valley DUI task force.
“Arizona has some of the strictest DUI laws in the country,” Corso said. “The consequences can be life altering.”
An underage DUI in Arizona can result in jail time, expensive fines and license suspension, affecting personal records, college and career applications.
If over the age of 21, increased penalties include the installment of an interlock ignition device after an extended period of license suspension.
“Drivers, students and parents need to understand the importance of contacting an experienced Scottsdale DUI lawyer if they find themselves or their loved ones in a difficult legal situation on prom night,” Corso said.
