Arizona Speeding Laws

You’re driving down the highway, rushing to escape the summer heat, and you see red and blue lights in your rear-view mirror. It’s the worst feeling, knowing that a single mistake is now going to cost you a ticket. However, the initial cost and inconvenience of that ticket isn’t where it ends. In fact, the financial burden of getting a speeding ticket can last for years, and by the time you factor in all of the hidden expenses of getting a ticket, you could be paying a lot more than you think. For instance, your insurance rates could go up as much as 18 percent for a single moving violation. What’s more, those rates will last for at least a year or two. Also, you’ll have points against your license. You could always go to traffic school to get some of them removed, but you’ll pay for that out of your pocket, too.

It’s clear that the cost of a speeding ticket goes far beyond the scope of the original fee. That’s why it’s so important to fight your ticket. Doing so can help save your driving record and can save you quite a bit of money in the long run. In order to have the best chance at fighting your speeding ticket in Arizona, you’ll need to understand the Arizona traffic laws, at least at a basic level, so you know what you’re facing. Also, it’s a good idea to hire an Arizona traffic attorney who can help you navigate the legal waters. The information below will help you with both.

Unique Arizona Driver's License Features

Driving in Arizona is arguably more risky than driving anywhere else in the country. There are speed traps all over the place, and with one of the strictest points systems around, even the safest, most conscientious driver could wind up having their license suspended for an entire year. In Arizona, you only have to accrue eight points against your license in a year in order to have your license suspended. Given the hefty points assigned to various moving violations in Arizona, it could take as little as a single moving violation to have your license suspended for a year.

The Point System in Arizona

You can earn eight points against your license for a variety of moving violations in Arizona. Drag racing and DUIs will cost you eight points out of the gate. However, even more benign and vaque moving violations like ‘exhibition of speed,’ reckless driving, and aggressive driving earn you eight points, as well. Speeding costs you three points across the board, so it’s conceivable that if you’re speeding and also driving in a manner that’s deemed to be aggressive, you earn more than eight points in a single accident. Even if you’re only speeding, though, you can still accrue enough points in a year to warrant the suspension of your license, even if you’re driving carefully, given the large amount of speed traps that Arizona is known for. It’s obvious that fighting a ticket is very much worth it.

Can you Fight a Speeding Ticket in Arizona?

Yes, and what’s more, you should. It’s easy to see that even a single ticket can cost you a lot more than the face value of the ticket itself. You’re looking at increased insurance rates for at least a year, points against your license, and other costly and inconvenient consequences if you pay your ticket. It might seem more convenient to just pay the ticket and move on, but in reality, the long-term consequences make it considerably more inconvenient and costly to pay it. That’s why you should seek out an experienced, qualified Arizona traffic attorney to help you through the process. Only an Arizona traffic lawyer will be able to look at your individual case and help you obtain the best results, up to and including having your ticket dropped.
