Understanding The Laws Surrounding Criminal Speeding In Arizona

In the state of Arizona, criminal speeding is a serious offense that falls under the category of a class 3 misdemeanor. If convicted, individuals may face penalties such as up to 30 days in jail, fines reaching $500, 3 points on their driver's license, and a permanent criminal record. Furthermore, accumulating eight or more points on one's driving record within a year can result in a suspension of their driving privileges.

Criminal speeding in Arizona can be charged in three specific scenarios:

  1. Approaching a School Zone: Driving at any speed that exceeds 35 miles per hour in the vicinity of a school zone.
  1. Exceeding the Posted Speed Limit: Driving at any speed that surpasses the posted speed limit by 20 miles per hour or more. For instance, traveling at 56 miles per hour in a 35-mile-per-hour zone.
  1. Exceeding 85 Miles per Hour: Driving at a speed exceeding 85 miles per hour, regardless of the posted speed limit. For example, traveling at 86 miles per hour in a 75-mile-per-hour zone.

Certain jurisdictions in Arizona, including cities like Scottsdale, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Glendale, and Phoenix, may impose jail time in cases where the alleged speed warrants such a penalty, according to the discretion of the prosecutors.

The Importance of Legal Representation

Many individuals charged with criminal speeding have never before faced criminal charges or convictions. It can be alarming to discover that a seemingly minor traffic violation could lead to a criminal record, potentially affecting one's employment, career prospects, insurance rates, and professional licensing. In such cases, it is advisable to consider hiring a lawyer to assist in dismissing or reducing the charge.

At our firm, we adopt a comprehensive approach to contesting criminal speeding tickets in Arizona. Rather than treating these violations as mere traffic infractions, we approach them with the same seriousness as DUI or major misdemeanors. Our objectives in every case are to secure resolutions that result in:

  • Achieving full case dismissal due to legal violations and errors.
  • Securing dismissal through diversion programs.
  • Obtaining dismissal by successfully completing Defensive Driving School.
  • Reducing the charge to a non-moving civil violation.
  • Downgrading the offense to a standard civil speeding violation.
  • Avoiding any incarceration penalties.
  • Preventing the case from being reported to criminal agencies.
  • Shielding against consequences affecting immigration status.
  • Pursuing expungement or filing a Motion to Set Aside Conviction when applicable.
