What is Considered Criminal Speeding in Arizona?

You can be cited for criminal speeding under these circumstances according to Arizona law and statute A.R.S. § 28-701.02:

  • Driving faster than 35 mph near a school zone
  • Driving over 20 miles above the speed limit in a business or residential location
  • Driving at a speed that surpasses 20 mph over the posted limit, such as 56 mph in a 35 mph zone
  • Drive at a speed exceeding 85 mph, regardless of the posted speed limit, for instance, driving at 86 mph in a 75 mph zone.

It's crucial to remember that the decision to issue a citation for civil or criminal speeding rests solely with the officer.

Penalties for Criminal Speeding in Arizona

In Arizona, criminal speeding is classified as a class 3 misdemeanor. This could result in a maximum of 30 days imprisonment, a financial penalty of up to $500 in fines and fees, a negative impact on your driving record with the addition of 3 points, and a permanent criminal mark on your record. To avoid a driver's license suspension, you must maintain under 8 points on your driving record within one year.

Other violations, such as reckless or aggressive driving, could result in additional charges, leading to harsher consequences like extended jail time and higher fines. Unlike regular traffic offenses, a criminal speeding conviction remains on a person's criminal record for life and cannot be erased. Hiring an experienced criminal speeding attorney in Phoenix can help reduce the severity of penalties, mitigate the daily impact of charges, and safeguard a driver's future.
