Reckless Driving

Reckless driving in California is a misdemeanor and the citing oficer has the right to either issue a ticket to the offender or take them into custody. Whether driving on a freeway, private property or in a off-street parking lot in a way that shows disregard for the safety of other people or their property is considered reckless driving.

Penalties for reckless driving could be between 5 – 90 days in county jail, though you might be eligible for probation. Also, the Defendant driver might lose their driver's license for one month and have their car impounded for 30 days. If reckless driving results in bodily injury to a person other than the drivel, jail time would be for at least 30 days and up to six months in county jail and the fine could be between $1,000 and $10,000. Also the offender would face a suspended driver's license for one year.

Making "unsafe" maneuvers, like making a sharp turn, or even screeching your tires could also be considered reckless driving as it shows disregard for other's safety.

On a first conviction under this section, the court shall order the driver to participate in, and successfully complete, an alcohol or drug education and counseling program. We can often get these cases dismissed or reduced.
