The Difference Between Criminal and Civil Speeding

The state of Arizona expects drivers to adhere to reasonable speeds when traveling on roadways. Most violations of this law get filed as a civil speeding violation, but when a driver reaches excessive speeds, the speeding charge will turn to criminal. Arizona considered a speeding violation to be criminal when:

  • The driver exceeds 85 mph on any roadway.
  • The driver exceeds 20 mph over the posted speed limit

Criminal Speeding is considered a class 3 misdemeanor which can include fines and jail time. If you are dealing with a criminal speeding violation, it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. 

Criminal Speeding Penalties In Arizona

Criminal Speeding in Arizona is considered a class 3 misdemeanor. Having this charge could lead to a maximum of 30 days in jail and a fine up to $500. There could potentially be one year of probation as well. Being convicted of this charge could have a lasting effect on drivers for the rest of their life.
