Obstructing Public Traffic in Arizona is a Class 3 Misdemeanor, which is the lowest level misdemeanor. Under Arizona law, this offense level is punishable by up to 30 days in county jail and a fine of up to $500, or any combination thereof. That being said, it is rare to be fined the maximum amount unless there was some egregious fact that occurred during the citation or offense. Also, prosecutors look to an individual's background in determining a sentence.
Also, there may be separate court costs and fees that are associated with the ticket. This usually is a separate charge that goes to the court and county for operational expenses. In this case, it would be best to speak to an Arizona lawyer who is familiar with the "usual" fine and fees levied against an individual.
