Careless or Reckless Driving

Reckless Driving Defense

Reckless driving is more severe than careless driving and it is considered a major traffic offense. It includes an accusation that a person drove a motor vehicle without caring about the safety of people on the road or property. Typically reckless driving charges are issued to drivers who are street racing, incidents of road rage or excessive speeding.

Consequences

A sentence for reckless driving includes the possibility of jail time, fine, court costs and the assessment of 8 points against your driving privilege. It completely depends upon the license classification as well as the accumulated points that how hard the punishment could be. A conviction for reckless driving could also result in direct DMV consequences.
