    DRIVING & ALCOHOL

    If you are under 21 years of age and are in possession of an alcoholic substance, you can be found guilty of a class 1 misdemeanor. If you are under 21 years of age, it is against the law to drive or be in physical control of a motor vehicle while there is any spirituous liquor in your body (A.R.S. § 4-244(34)).

    A person under 21 years old who asks someone else to purchase, sell or furnish them with alcohol is guilty of a class 3 misdemeanor and could receive a penalty of a maximum of 30 days in jail, a $500 fine plus surcharges (A.R.S. § 13-802) and suspension of a drivers license or permit (A.R.S. § 4-241(D))

    A person under 21 years old who uses false identification to buy or be furnished with alcohol is guilty of a class 1 misdemeanor and could receive a penalty of 6 months in jail and a $2,500 fine plus surcharges (A.R.S. § 13-707) including suspension of a drivers license or permit (A.R.S. § 4-241(C),(E))

    These laws aent used so that they can torture us kids by denying us certain privedges, its for our safety. People say that they drink and its fun, but no one tells you that accidents are the number one killer in AZ and that most are caused by drunk drivers, most of which are under 21. They restrict us because if you dont notice this yet, which you should, teenagers are EXTREMELY immature. You may ot realize this, but we are. We find sex funny, cops retarded, teachers lame, and drugs exhilarating. Those who arnt thinking the following see how these things effect our friends.This is a good law.
