HIT AND RUN REDUCED to “unsafe backing” ticket – State v. Ms. B. (DMC No. 4551) (Surprise City Court TR04-02050): Ms. B. had been backing out of her driveway when she struck a car that parked across the street in order to visit a friend. She then drove away, and a neighbor reported her to police. When contacted by police she denied being involved in the accident, although she admitted to driving and that her stereo had been very loud. The prosecution was eventually convinced to offer her a plea to “unsafe backing” for a fine of $113.
