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.

Client Reviews
We hired Trent Buckallew to represent our son following a second MIP ticket he received while in college. Mr. Buckallew kept us informed throughout all proceedings and helped us receive the satisfactory outcome of dropped charges in exchange for taking an alcohol awareness class. He was personable, knowledgeable and treated our small case with care and compassion. We would highly recommend him to anyone in need of representation. SR
Thank you so much for the time and effort you put into the case against (client's name). We sincerely appreciate the great job you did. We are praying this is the end of it. Thanks again so very much. This was such a difficult time for our family. LN
I'm finally 100% clear of the problem that started our relationship. I cannot thank you enough for handling my case and expungement. I have a great sense of new beginnings and don't have to let my past affect my future. My freedom is priceless. TM
I appreciate everything you were able to accomplish for my father and will certainly be referring Mr. Buckallew to anyone I know who may be in need of an excellent criminal defense attorney. CM
Trent handled cases for me on two different occasions involving tickets for seat belt violations in commercial vehicles. Very happy with results. All charges dismissed. One case in Flagstaff and one case in Gilbert Court. KF
