    So basically, every punishment to every law offence = license revoked? Can they not think of anything better. It's like saying, since you are a meth-addict, im going to take away your license instead of sending you to rehab so you won't kill yourself. Great job, Arizona, and thanks Laws4Kids, you really cleared things up and showed me that I will never set foot in Arizona ever. P.S. Girl: "You're cuffing yourself..."

    For Austin. In most states they consider going 25 or more miles over the speed limit reckless driving unless everyone else is. It can go from having your motorcycle license suspeded to being arrested for reckless driving
