What does the law say about my violation?

On this web-site, there is a link entitled, “Arizona Revised Statues.”   From that link, you can select the title and section of any law of interest to you, and read the black-letter law. 

In addition, you may want to look at the Court Rules which the courts must follow in conducting your hearing.  

  1. For civil driving offenses, see “Traffic” rules. 
  2. For misdemeanor driving violations, see “Criminal Traffic” rules. 
  3. For non-traffic misdemeanors, see “Rules of Criminal Procedures.”  

Alternatively, you can come into court and use the books here or at your library.
