Aggressive driving is a serious traffic offense in Arizona that is charged when a driver operates a vehicle in a manner that endangers the safety of others. The relevant statute is Arizona Revised Statutes section 28-695.
Under this law, aggressive driving is defined as committing a combination of two or more specified violations of the traffic code that are not related to a mechanical problem with the vehicle, and that are performed with the intent to harass, annoy, injure or obstruct another person.
The specified violations can include speeding, unsafe lane changes, following too closely, failure to obey traffic signals or signs, and other similar offenses.
A conviction for aggressive driving in Arizona is typically charged as a Class 1 misdemeanor, which can result in a fine of up to $2,500 and a maximum of six months in jail. In addition, a conviction can result in increased insurance rates and points on the driver’s license.
It is important to note that aggressive driving is different from reckless driving. Reckless driving involves driving in a manner that shows a disregard for the safety of others or with willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property, whereas aggressive driving involves a combination of specified traffic violations performed with the intent to harass, annoy, injure or obstruct another person.
