Annual Waste Management Phoenix Open, Arizona DUI Prevalent

The four-day PGA event held annually in Scottsdale, Arizona, is commonly labelled as the world's most-attended golf tournament and known for its party atmosphere with some 250,000 spectators expected each day. Known as the Waste Management Phoenix Open, the 2011 golf tournament will run from Jan. 31 through Feb. 6, 2011 and will include many of the PGA's major stars.

Important 2011 Golf Tournament Events

Feb. 1, 2011: At 11 a.m., a CBS Special Olympics media event will take place. Media personalities, community leaders, professional athletes and celebrities are all expected to attend. The Waste Management Phoenix Opening party begins at 6 p.m. and is by invitation only.

Feb. 2, 2011: The FBR/Xerox Silver pro-am event begins at 8:30 a.m. at the TPC stadium course, and the Scottsdale celebrity-am event kicks off at Grayhawk Golf Club at 10 a.m. At 3:30 pm, the very popular closest-to-the-pin contest begins with two lucky golf fans participating along with local media personalities, local heroes, and Iraq and Afghanistan veterans.

This year, the Tilted Kilt Beer Garden will be open at the 18th hole, and the Michelob Ultra Champions Pavilion will be located between the 2nd and 9th greens and feature an open bar.

Like many large sporting spectacles, alcohol will be prevalent at the annual Waste management Phoenix Open. Festivities such as these always seem to come ripe with opportunities for alcohol abuse and drunk driving. Spectators should be conscious of the DUI laws in Arizona. The state of Arizona is one of the toughest states in the nation when it comes to drunk driving and DUI.

DUI Penalties in Arizona

Anyone convicted of a DUI in Arizona will face mandatory jail time. A first offense can result in a jail sentence ranging from 24 hours to 45 days. There are also additional consequences including mandatory alcohol classes, driver's license suspension, mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device, and significant fines.

The penalties will increase if the driver's blood alcohol content (BAC) is 0.15 or higher, or 0.20 or higher. Jail sentences, fines, and license suspensions will also increase if the conviction is not the first DUI for the offender.

Collateral consequences can also take place, including insurance premium increases, additional driver's license suspension if your license is from out-of-state, and immigration issues, just to name a few.

Mandatory fines (based on the driver's prior DUI history and level of intoxication) and alcohol education classes are also required.
