DUI/DWI Attorneys in Yuma, Arizona
A DUI (driving under the influence) or DWI (driving while intoxicated) charge is a serious offense that is taken seriously in the eyes of the law. If you or a loved one has been charged with a DUI or DWI, the best way to protect your interests is to seek the help of a qualified criminal defense attorney.
Driving under the influence in Arizona and California is characterized by a 0.08 blood alcohol level or an appearance of being impaired by drugs or alcohol.
Police typically look for signs of swerving, tailgating, drifting, hugging center or outside lanes, speeds noticeably above or below the limit and erratic braking to identify potential drunk drivers.
Law enforcement will stop suspected offenders and administer a field sobriety test to examine the driver’s coordination. Further suspicions may warrant a Breathalyzer test or blood analysis.
