    printer friendly version


    What is the penalty for making device that will change the traffic lights green (such as the police have) and interfering with traffic lights in Arizona?


    You are talking about a tool that is called a traffic preemption emitter. This type of device is found in police and fire vehicles.  A violation of this law, which is found in A.R.S. § 28-649, is a class one misdemeanor.  Anyone convicted of a class one misdemeanor can receive a sentence of up to six months in jail, a $2,500.00 fine (plus an extra fee of 84%), and up to three years of probation.

    The actual language in the law (A.R.S. § 28-649) says:

    B. A person shall not possess a traffic preemption emitter unless the person is authorized to possess a traffic preemption emitter within the course and scope of the person's duties with a law enforcement agency, fire department, ambulance service or agency of the federal government, this state or a political subdivision of this state.

    C. A person who violates this section is guilty of a class 1 misdemeanor.

    D. For the purposes of this section, "traffic preemption emitter" means strobe, strobe light or any device that is capable of changing the display of any traffic control device used to control the movement of vehicles, bicycles or pedestrians.
