Extreme DUI v. Super Extreme DUI

Arizona is one of the few states in the country that has something called "Extreme DUI" and "Super Extreme DUI."  Both of these offenses are enhanced versions of a basic  DUI charge:

Extreme DUI

A defendant will face Extreme DUI charges if his or her blood alcohol concentration is .15% or higher.  At this point, the driver's ability to safely operate a vehicle is severely compromised.  Extreme DUI is punishable by:

  • A 90-day driver's license suspension
  • Up to 5 years probation
  • 30 days in jail
  • Mandatory participation in an alcohol treatment program
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device

A second Extreme DUI conviction will result in further enhanced penalties, such as:

  • $2,000 or more in fines
  • A 1-year driver's license revocation
  • Up to 5 years probation
  • 60 days in jail, 120 days total
  • Mandatory participation in an alcohol treatment program
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device

Super Extreme DUI

Super Extreme DUI charges will be brought against any driver found operating a vehicle with a BAC level of .20% or more.  This is the most serious DUI charge a person can face, and involves much higher penalties, including:

  • 45 to 180 days in jail
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device for 18 months
  • Up to 5 years probation
  • More than $3,000 in fines
  • Driver's license suspension/revocation

Naturally, if you are charged with a second Super Extreme DUI, the penalties will be much harsher.
