How serious can traffic tickets be?
When most people think of traffic violations, they think of a ticket that a person could receive for violations such as the following:
- Excessive speed
- Failing to yield
- Equipment failure
- Following too closely
- No proof of insurance
- Failure to signal
- Failing to stop at a stoplight or stop sign
- Other traffic violations
These are usually going to be considered civil traffic violations that result in fines and points against a person’s license. A lawyer will work diligently to get the fines and points reduced or even dismissed.
However, there are also more serious criminal traffic violations that a person could face. Criminal traffic violations will be misdemeanor offenses in Arizona and must be treated like any other criminal case – with a vigorous defense. Some of the most common criminal traffic offenses we help clients with include the following:
- Criminal speeding
- Reckless driving
- Aggressive driving
- Driving under the influence (DUI)
- Hit-and-run offenses
- Driving under suspension (DUS)
- Accidents involving serious personal injury or death
Penalties for a criminal traffic violation vary depending on how the specifics of the case, but they can result in jail time, probation, major fines, the loss of a driver’s license, and more. It’s important to hire a NW Phoenix traffic ticket attorney who can help you reduce the charges or even have them dismissed.
What Will Your Traffic Ticket Attorney do to Help?

- There was a procedural error committed by the police
