Racing Charges in Tempe?
Contact Our Tempe Criminal Traffic Ticket Lawyer Today
In Arizona, racing is defined as driving a vehicle or participating in
any manner of a race, speed competition or contest, drag race or acceleration
contest, test of physical endurance or exhibition of speed or acceleration,
or for the purpose of making a speed record on a street or highway. While
the law may be thought to target those who participate in true street
racing, it is a charge that is sometimes levied on normal drivers who
may appear to be racing with another vehicle, accelerating inappropriately
for the purpose of exhibition, or just quickly accelerating off of a stop.
If you have been charged with racing,
contact a Tempe traffic ticket lawyer who can help prepare your legal defense.
Street Racing Offenses: Serious Penalties
First-time offenders who are found guilty of this
criminal traffic violation should expect to pay fines of at least $250, restitution if deemed appropriate,
and a 90-day suspension of driver’s license. Subsequent convictions
within 24 months may yield fines of no less than $500, restitution and
revocation of your driver’s license. While fines and restitution
can be costly, there is no greater cost than the loss of driving privileges.
Many drivers depend on their ability to drive for many obligations such
as work and family, and loss of this freedom can cause a litany of complications.
