What Is Excessive Speeding In Arizona?

While many speeding tickets are civil violations with no criminal consequences, excessive speeding is a criminal offense. Arizona law defines excessive speeding as:

  • Going 20 or more mph over the posted speed limit
  • Going 45 mph or more in a residential or business district where no speed limit is posted
  • Going more than 35 mph at a school crossing

Interstate 40 is notorious for extreme speeding. If you get pulled over doing 100 or more miles per hour, you could also find yourself facing reckless driving charges.

Are You From Out Of State?

If you are a snowbird, college student or vacationer who got pulled over for speeding in Arizona, you cannot ignore the offense and hope it will go away. That could result in a warrant for your arrest and a criminal record that turns up on background checks.

Your best bet is to enlist an Arizona attorney to help you fight the charges. Attorney Moore routinely represents clients from out of state. He is committed to helping you move forward so you don’t have to deal with a nagging legal charge hanging over your head.
