Scottsdale is a great place.
Don’t Drink & Drive — Arizona is Zero Tolerance State – Scottsdale, especially.
1. Get Behind The Wheel
The main thing you don’t want to do in Scottsdale is drink and drive. We hope that you don’t drink and drive anywhere but especially in Arizona. For the most part, the Scottsdale Police are nice, fair and friendly – they see a lot of shenanigans on the weekends in Old Town and put up with a lot of insanity in North Scottsdale during Barrett Jackson, Russo & Steele and WMPO. DIG likes the Scottsdale PD – keep it up!
Do not drink and drive here. Not one beer, glass of wine, shot, cocktail, martini. Just don’t do it. Uber is everywhere and it’s cheap and easy. Even if you blow a 0.051, you can get a DUI. Zero tolerance means zero tolerance.
2. Pay Attention To Where You Go
If you have been drinking and now you are walking around with a full bladder, find a toilet. Don’t pee in public. Do not pee behind a bush, in a parking lot, in an alley, behind a dumpster or anywhere else outside. Not finding a proper place to relieve yourself can not only land you in jail but you may become a registered sex offender for indecent exposure.
3. Drink Like A Fish
And finally, the one thing you absolutely do not want to do while you’re in Scottsdale is forget to hydrate! Drink water. Drink it morning, noon and night. Drink it while you’re outside, inside or driving around. Hydrate: this is the desert, drink more water – you’ll thank us!
