What are the issues involved in a civil traffic hearing?
The questions to be determined in any given hearing will vary depending on the specific allegation of violation in the complaint. It may, therefore, be helpful to note the exact “section” number of the “Arizona Revised Statutes (ARS)” or “Carefree or Cave Creek Town Code (TC)” that is referred to and alleged to have been committed in the complaint. (The Arizona Revised Statutes can be found in most public libraries). Remember, that a civil traffic hearing is only about whether the alleged traffic law was broken.
