Snowbirds and vehicle registration laws in Arizona

Many retirees come to Arizona during the winter to escape the cold temperatures back home, and while some snowbirds spend six or seven months in the state, many fail to properly register their vehicles. State laws require that any individual living in the state for seven months or longer in one calendar year properly register his or her vehicle.

Reckless driving: A traffic ticket that is a criminal offense

Some traffic tickets need to be treated more seriously than others. One example is reckless driving, which is a misdemeanor in Arizona.

A misdemeanor is a criminal offense that could result in jail time, driver's license suspension, and a permanent criminal record. A misdemeanor conviction could affect much more than your insurance rates. It could affect your employment. Your employer's insurance company may not cover you in company vehicles if you have a conviction for reckless driving.

What happens if I don't pay a traffic ticket?

No one likes to pay a traffic ticket. Some go so far as to ignore the ticket, hoping it will fall through the cracks of the court system. People who live in other states may think that the local government will not pursue them if they are not a resident.

Unfortunately, not paying a traffic ticket can lead to several unpleasant surprises.
