The most common type of speeding ticket in Arizona is a civil speeding ticket which does not arise to misdemeanor criminal charges. The penalties for these offenses are generally a fine and points added against your license. However, if you are cited for doing one of the three, you will likely be cited for criminal speeding.
Criminal speeding is a class 3 misdemeanor and usually is accompanied by hefty fines. Until Arizona’s 2023 DUI expungement laws take effect, like all criminal charges, a criminal speeding ticket will be on your record for life. At the Rosenstein Law Group, we helped mitigate many criminal speeding charges to civil offenses and even had some dismissed.
