Reckless Driving Defense Attorneys
Reckless driving is a criminal traffic offense in Florida. In the state of Florida, reckless driving is defined as the "willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property." Unlike speeding tickets and other moving violations, which are considered civil violations, reckless driving is a criminal offense that has more severe penalties for drivers.

Charges of reckless driving may also accompany other charges, including DUI, racing and accident-related traffic offenses. These charges, alone or together, may have a significant impact on your ability to drive and can also impact your criminal record. Penalties for reckless driving include fines and court costs, license suspension or revocation, driving school, and even possible jail time.
If this is your first reckless driving offense, you face up to 90 days in jail and a fine of $500. The charge could add four points to your driving record and create a criminal misdemeanor record if you do not already have one.
