Reckless Driving is defined as the following - § 1212 Reckless driving. Reckless driving shall mean driving or using any motor vehicle, motorcycle or any other vehicle propelled by any power other than muscular power or any appliance or accessory thereof in a manner which unreasonably interferes with the free and proper use of the public highway, or unreasonably endangers users of the public highway. Reckless driving is prohibited. Every person violating this provision shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.

Reckless Driving is a crime and can result in a jail term, probation and/or fines. Reckless driving is usually attached to other driving related or criminal defenses and must be taken seriously to protect your liberty, driver's license and insurance rates.

Reckless Driving is a 5 point offense.

How do we fight reckless driving charges?

Since the reckless driving is a misdemeanor the District Attorney's office proceeds with the prosecution. Our lawyers will aggressively fight against any reckless driving charge. The first step in the process is to obtain as much information about the charge as possible. We conduct a thorough interview to determine weaknesses in the prosecution's case.

After the interview phase we determine if the charge is legally sustainable. For example, speeding alone is not sufficient to establish a reckless driving charge. We look for the necessary additional factors that the motorist was operating a motor vehicle under such circumstances to show a reckless disregard of the consequences. If these additional factors don't exist we will make a motion to dismiss the case.

Our lawyers will also conference the case with the District Attorney's office and the Court seeking to dismiss the charge outright or reduced the charge to a non-criminal offense. During this entire process we are preparing the case for trial to protect your rights.
