When Charged With Reckless Driving, You Need A Proven Lawyer

That means, if you try to evade, avoid, escape or otherwise “lose” a law enforcement officer while driving a motor vehicle, you’ll be charged with reckless driving in addition to the other serious criminal penalties you will certainly face.
If charged with reckless driving, you face serious consequences, including imprisonment and the mandatory revocation of your driver’s license if serious personal injury or death resulted from your actions.

Fighting Charges And Getting Them Dismissed
Reckless driving can take many forms, but what they all have in common is that the person driving is driving as if they could care less about anyone or anything. Someone who is driving recklessly might be haphazardly swerving in and out of thick traffic with no real space to change lanes, but they are going to move over regardless.
