Los Angeles Traffic Ticket Lawyer
If you are pulled over for reckless driving, it is within the officer's discretion to either give you a ticket charging you with a misdemeanor or take you into custody.
Reckless driving is when someone is driving in a manner that is showing complete disregard to public safety and the safety of others. Reckless driving results in anywhere from 5 to 90 days in jail and fines anywhere from $500 to $5000.
If reckless driving results in bodily injury to any other person besides the driver, the results will be at least 30 days in jail and up to 6 months, fines anywhere from $1000 to $10,000, and driver license suspension for one year.
If you are facing a DUI charge, our traffic ticket lawyers may be able to reduce the charge to a reckless driving charge; although there are consequences as discussed above, it would be less severe than DUI penalties.
If you have been cited with reckless driving, our Los Angeles traffic court attorneys may be able to get the ticket dismissed.
