A: This depends largely on how fast you were going. If it was barely over the 20mph criminal threshold then the prosecutor may agree to offer a civil speeding plea or the judge may allow you to take defensive driving school. If it is in a school zone, other erratic driving observed, etc. then maybe not. The fact that you have no criminal history is good especially if you also have an otherwise clean driving record. Best to consult an AZ attorney to review your case.
