Traffic Violations in Flagstaff and Northern Arizona
Traffic violations describe the act of driving and breaking the traffic laws. Each state has different laws that must be followed to promote safety. If the laws are violated, this can have major consequences, and the rules vary based on state laws, like losing your license.
Speeding and Criminal Speeding – Every state has a law prohibiting speeding on the highway. Under criminal speeding in Arizona, you can be convicted of a criminal act. This carries a jail sentence and a fine, along with other punishments. Criminal convictions can negatively affect your ability to get a security clearance or reenter the United States of America, if you are not a citizen.
In Arizona, there are three traffic laws that are attributed to different levels of speeding, and they are called:
- Basic Speeding Law: this law is enforced based on weather conditions
- Prima Facie Speed Limits: presumed driving limits based on location and neighborhood
- Absolute Speed Limits: speeding on interstate highways
Red Light Violation – Every state includes a law that prohibits driving into the intersection despite the red light denoting a complete stop at the crosswalk. In Arizona, the fines for this violation can reach a maximum cost of $250 as well as two demerit points added to your record. In addition, you may be required to take a traffic survival school course. There are other circumstances regarding driving through red lights that can result in different charges, such as a reckless driving conviction.
Texting Violation – In most states there are laws that prohibit the act of texting while driving. This includes sending, reading, and writing texts through cellular phones. In Flagstaff, Arizona, an ordinance is in place that prohibits the use of cellphones to text or talk while driving. If this ordinance is violated, this is seen as a violation of civil traffic laws and the result is a fine that can range from $100 to $250 depending on whether or not there was a car accident as a result of distracted driving.
There is nothing insignificant about the consequences of a petty misdemeanor. You should have Attorney Vaughan S. Winborne on your side before it is too late.
