Common DUI myths, misconceptions

There are so many myths and misconceptions when it comes to DUI charges in Arizona. Some of the most common myths include:

  • You cannot challenge a DUI charge if you failed a Breathalyzer test. You can!
  • You have to take a field sobriety test in Arizona. You don’t – and you shouldn’t!
  • Breathalyzer test results are always accurate. They’re not!
  • You cannot challenge DUI blood test results. You can!
  •  You have to answer all the arresting officer’s questions. You don’t!
  • You cannot appeal a DUI conviction in Arizona. You can!
  • You can’t be charged with DUI in Arizona if you weren’t driving. You can!

Arizona’s DUI laws can be confusing, including the actual physical control law, which says that a police officer can arrest you for DUI even if you were not driving, depending on other extenuating circumstances. Don’t underestimate the seriousness of your case. Make sure you talk to a lawyer at our law firm as soon as possible.
