Reckless Driving Charges in Florida- 1800-559-4320

Driving is more than a privilege.  Without transportation, day-to-day life can grind to a halt.

What is Reckless Driving?

There are a number of behaviors which can result in charges of reckless driving, including speeding, tailgating, failure to yield and weaving in and out of traffic.  Reckless driving can actually be sort of a “catch-all” term, even covering screeching around a corner, or suddenly slamming on the brakes.  Reckless driving puts others on the roadways in danger as well as putting the driver who is driving in a reckless manner in harm’s way.

Many feel reckless driving is a fairly minor offense, however the charges can be quite serious.  Reckless driving is considered a second-degree misdemeanor under Florida law, yet the punishment for a reckless driving conviction can be as much as ninety days behind bars, six months’ probation and/or a fine as large as $500.  A person who is convicted of a second offense of reckless driving could face double those penalties, with the potential of as much as six months incarceration.
