Reckless Driving Charges
Reckless driving is a serious traffic violation. Unlike speeding or a
red light violation, which are infractions, reckless driving is a misdemeanor offense for which a conviction will result in criminal penalties. These penalties may include fines, jail time and community service. Additionally, a reckless driving charge results in 2 points on a person’s driving record. Accumulating a certain amount of points in a specified amount of time will mean that the driver will face a
suspended license due to the
DMV label of “Negligent Operator.”
