Know Your Limit! Arizona penalties for impaired driving are severe and include mandatory jail time, thousands of dollars in fines and court fees, suspension of driving license or privilege to drive, vehicle impoundment and other expenses. The results of driving drunk are tragic and that’s why law enforcement is out there looking for impaired drivers. To save lives. Don’t be a Grinch and steal holiday fun. Add a designated driver to every holiday party and festive celebration. Please plan for a sober ride. If you’ve been drinking, call a sober friend, taxi, or rideshare to get you home safely. If you Drive Hammered, You’ll Get Nailed!
