Arizona is the second toughest state in the nation when it comes to speeding and reckless driving penalties.
According to a new study by the personal finance website WalletHub, Arizona is also the 9th toughest when it comes to considering speeding a form of reckless driving.
Arizona also ranks among the top 10 states for fines and jail time for reckless driving.
"... It was $367, so it wasn't a cheap ticket."
[B' Spokes: In contrast in Arizona speed cameras in schools zones can issue you a ticket if you are going 6 mph over the speed limit vs. Maryland's 12 mph over the limit and Maryland's fine is only $40. It is also interesting to note in Maryland it is really hard to get a reckless driving charge, speeding is just speeding even if in a school zone with children present and doing twice the speed limit.]
