Reckless Driving Law

Reckless driving is considered a serious traffic violation in the United States. It could lead to heavy fines, imprisonment and even suspension of an individual’s driver’s license. All the more reason why it is important for people to know what constitutes reckless driving in their respective states and what the consequences of reckless driving are. Given below are important questions about reckless driving answered by the Experts.

Would a reckless driving ticket received in Nevada affect an individual’s license in Pennsylvania?

A reckless driving ticket received in Nevada can affect an individual’s license in Pennsylvania. Both Nevada and Pennsylvania are members of the Interstate Driver’s License Compact and Non Resident Violator Compact. As a result, Pennsylvania may receive a report from the authorities of Nevada about the individual’s reckless driving ticket leading to the possibility of the individual’s license getting suspended for six months.

What is the punishment for reckless driving in South Carolina?

The reckless driving penalty may differ in different parts of the United States. In South Carolina, an individual may be fined between $25 and $200 and given a jail sentence of not more than 30 days. In some situations, if the individual has not got any driving tickets in the past, they may not be asked to serve jail time.

Does an individual need to pay another fine in the state from which they got their license if they have already paid a reckless driving ticket in a different state?

If an individual pays the fine for a reckless driving ticket in the state where they received the ticket, they may not have to pay for it again in the state in which they originally got their license.. However, points may get added to their license even though the ticket was given in a different state.

Can an individual request for a reckless driving charge to be amended to a lesser, non-criminal charge?

An individual may be able to request for an amendment of a reckless driving ticket to a lesser, non-criminal charge such as careless driving if there aren’t enough facts to prove the charge. The individual may also request for a plea deal to amend the ticket if they have no prior history of any kind of traffic violation.

How serious would a reckless driving charge be in Virginia?

In Virginia, a reckless driving charge is considered a class 1 misdemeanor with a penalty of up to 1 year in jail, a fine of up to $2500 and the suspension of the driver’s license for up to six months.

Can a reckless driving charge be expunged?

In most situations, a reckless driving charge may be expunged only if the individual who was charged was found not guilty of the charge or the case against the individual was dismissed. If the individual was found guilty and punished for reckless driving, they may not be able to expunge the charges.

Reckless driving laws may differ in different parts of the United States. That’s why it is important for you to know what the rules and laws for reckless driving are in your state. However, it can be difficult for you to do all the research about reckless driving and its penalties on your own. At times like this, you can direct your questions to Experts for professional insights and information that can help you with your reckless driving case.

  • A group of teens flicked me off after I honked at them to not

    A group of teens flicked me off after I honked at them to not miss a light. Angrily, at the next light I got into the turn lane beside them and flicked them off. They set off in pursuit after me. They nearly hit a car coming down a mountain after a curve, then were all over a road as we climbed up a steep mountain, chasing after me. Driving a lexus, I was able to outrun and out maneuver them, staying in between the lines, but they were not. I took a fast exit, and they did not or could not follow.
    Should I file a police report? I may be incriminating myself for reckless driving. I'm not sure how fast I was going, but it was up a steep and difficult windy road.
  • This past May 3, 2014, my son was involved in a serious car

    This past May 3, 2014, my son was involved in a serious car accident, where he suffered serious injuries and had major surgery. At first I thought that he was going to be charged with DWI, because the police officer made a comment to me on the phone that "Your Lucky I'm Not charging him With DWI". After my son was released from the hospital , the police officer called me to make arrangements for me to bring my son to the police station, so she could close her case, and that she was going on vacation and needed to do this quickly. I told her her, because of my sons injuries he couldn't leave the house. Anyway, I made arrangements with her that she could come to my house that same night. I waited a couple of hours for her to arrive at my place. I even called her on the phone, and she never called be back. To make a long story short. A few days later he received a summons by mail to appear at the South Reginal Courthouse for an arraignment in Hollywood, Florida on July 30, 2014 at 1:30 PM, which is 2 days from now. The charges checked off on the summons, were "Careless Driving", and other violations/comments typed out the summons were Reckless Driving- Drives any Vehicle willful Disregard For Safety - excessive speed. I am disabled , and live on a very tight and fixed income, and can not afford an Attorney to represent my Son. After all that has happened, all my son remembers is driving home, and then blanking out. I'm not familiar with Florida's law, so I called an old friend of mine who lives in Florida, who's a Para-Legal, and he told me that if they want to offer a plea, like, Withold of judication, a fine, school, no contest, or probation, that if I accept it, it will save me a lot money, and it would not be on his record after a certain period of time. My son is in Florida to attend school, and just got the green light that he is now physical able to return back to school.
    My questions to you is, what should I do? and if I decide on any of those options, how do go about doing it without an attorney? Can I represent him in court on my own without an Attorney? Can I postpone it, until I can hopefully afford an Attorney. I've spoke with my Son, and he wants to put all of this behind, and move on, and go back to school.
    I know that I had enough time to figure out what to do about my sons case, and I'm sorry that I'm asking you for advise 2 days before his case is held.
    Your advise would be deeply appreciated.
