Alternative Sanctioning Approaches for Repeat DUI Offenders in Arizona

(Last Updated On: October 24, 2018)

Consequences for Repeat DUI Offenders in Arizona

Paying a fine or serving time in jail are not ideal options for either local authorities or those who have been charged with a DUI. If you have received multiple DUI convictions, understanding your alternatives is important.

The state of Arizona has four alternative sanction options for repeat DUI offenders in lieu of fines or time spent in jail.


Ignition Interlock Systems

An ignition interlock system will prevent you from driving without first taking a breath analysis test. Drivers with a blood alcohol content over the legal limit are unable to start or drive their car after failing the test. You cannot start your car without taking this test, nor can you have someone else take it for you.


Vehicle Impoundment

Impounding a vehicle takes it out of your physical control, reducing the likelihood that you will drink and drive in the future. Vehicle impoundment is only considered for repeat DUI offenders. If your vehicle is impounded, law enforcement will provide you with a Notice of Impoundment that contains the location of your vehicle. Impoundment typically lasts 30 days, after which your vehicle is returned.


Electronically-Monitored House Arrest

Electronic monitoring programs utilize a device that attaches to your ankle or wrist to track your movements. This provides an alternative to spending time in jail by allowing you to remain in your own home. You may be required to submit to breath analysis tests at random periods during this time.


Intensive Probation Supervision and Treatment

A fourth alternative to incarceration for multiple DUI’s is probation supervision and treatment, which seeks to provide repeat DUI offenders with access to rehabilitation and treatment for alcohol abuse. During your treatment, you will also be under intensive supervision to prevent further offenses.
