Criminal Traffic Violation Examples in Arizona [Infographic]
Most Arizona driving offenses are civil offenses that add points toward an Arizona license suspension or result in a fine. The most severe traffic violations, however, are treated as criminal offenses that carry severe legal consequences if a driver is convicted.
Common criminal traffic violations ranging from misdemeanor to felony offenses in Arizona include:
Super Extreme DUI
Commercial Driving (CDL) violations
Making an attempt to evade or escape Arizona law enforcement
Driving with either a suspended or invalid license
The severity of the offense in question will inform whether the criminal violation is treated as a misdemeanor or a felony that results in extensive jail time. However, defendants facing any criminal charges for traffic violations should be aware that a conviction can lead to:
A suspended license
Mandatory use of an IID (ignition interlock device)
The negative effects of a criminal record
