Arizona Speeding and Other Traffic Violations
In Arizona, there are two categories of traffic violations. The first are civil traffic violations, where there is no chance of serving jail time. The second are criminal traffic violations, in which case the fines, penalties, and jail time vary according to city, county, and judge.
Types of Traffic Violations:
Traffic Violation Point System
|Leaving the scene of accident, hit-and-run||6|
|Failure to stop for a traffic signal, stop sign or to yield the right-of-way causing death||6|
|Failure to stop for a traffic signal, stop sign or to yield the right-of-way causing serious injury||4|
|Driving over or parking in a gore area||3|
|All other moving violations||2|
If you accumulate 8 points within a 12 month period you can face the following punishments:
- Have their license suspended for not more than 1 year
- Or may be required to attend a traffic education and training course.
