The East Valley Tribune reports that 125 officers from local agencies begin the DUI Holiday task force in the East Valley* Friday night. While the task force is looking for impaired drivers it is also enforcing a zero tolerance policy for underage drinkers reports the Tribune. If your attending a holiday party, graduation, or other social event please be responsible and know that police are looking for those who drink and drive.
Remember, it only takes a few drinks to pass the legal limit and in Arizona anyone can be convicted of a DUI if they are impaired to the slightest degree. Arizona’s DUI laws are some of the harshest in the nation and include mandatory jail time for all offenders. If stopped for a DUI know your rights and contact an experienced DUI attorney for advice.
*East Valley cities include Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Apache Junction
