Many drivers are surprised to learn that a conviction for reckless driving can lead to a criminal record. Unlike lesser motor vehicle charges of speeding and traveling too fast for conditions, a conviction for reckless driving can lead to a jail sentence of up to 30 days. In addition, it will result in a suspension of your driver’s license. If you have been charged with reckless driving, it is important that you understand the potential ramifications of a conviction.
Examples of Traffic Cases
At Smart, Donohue & NeJame, P.C., our lawyers help clients deal with traffic matters. We defend them against traffic charges such as the following:
- Receiving multiple speeding tickets
- Evading responsibility/leaving the scene/hit-and-run
- Operating without a license and after license suspension or revocation
- Driving recklessly
- Overweight / over-length violations
Our attorneys employ defense strategies that are focused on a prompt and just resolution of your case. If you have been charged with reckless driving, we will examine all of the evidence, including reports of speed, eyewitness reports and even on-the-scene investigations, which will enable us to argue that your driving was not, in fact, reckless.
We will explore the use of diversionary programs such as Accelerated Rehabilitation as well as a plea to a lesser infraction, which would not have the devastating and potentially life-changing consequences of a conviction for reckless driving.
