PHOENIX (AP) - An Arizona court has upheld the constitutionality of a state law requiring compliance with lawful orders or directions by police who are directing or regulating traffic.

A man who drove off when told to not move his vehicle during a traffic stop argued that the law is unconstitutionally vague and couldn’t be the basis for a criminal conviction.

A three-judge panel of the state Court of Appeals denied the appeal Thursday.

The ruling said that the law is clear enough by requiring that violations be made willfully and presuming that citizens have a basis to know what’s lawful.
