More criminal speeding tickets issued in Arizona

Posted: Updated:

New numbers from the Governor's Office of Highway Safety show that police in Arizona handed out more criminal speeding and aggressive driving tickets.

Criminal speeding is when you go above 20 miles per hour the posted speed limit. Since 2014, the number of criminal speed citations has jumped nearly 10 percent. In 2014, there were 15,560 tickets issued. In 2016, there were 16,815.

For aggressive driving citations, Arizona saw 388 tickets issued in 2014. Two years later in 2016, the number of tickets was 528.

Despite the increase in tickets, deadly crashes in Arizona have also risen. In 2014, there were 709 fatal accidents. In 2016, that number spiked to 865.
