Reckless Driving Defense Attorney in Athens

Learn How You Can Defend From This & Similar Charges

Reckless driving is more than a traffic violation-it is a misdemeanor offense that carries criminal penalties. There are a number of driving behaviors that can fall under the label of "reckless driving," but they all boil down to driving in a way that shows disregard to the safety of others.

Reckless Driving Laws

If convicted of reckless driving, you could face penalties from both the court and the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS). The criminal sentence could include up to one year in jail as well as fines up to $1,000.

The DDS can also add four points on your driver's license. If you go over a certain amount of points, you could lose your license. For drivers over the age of 21, four points is enough for an automatic license suspension. In addition, your insurance provider will more than likely raise your insurance premiums after noticing the points on your license, and your rates could remain high for as long as seven years.

The following actions could be considered reckless driving:

  • Speeding
  • Ignoring street and traffic signs
  • Failing to yield to drivers and pedestrians with right-of-way
  • Driving with malfunctioning lights or instruments
  • Texting while driving

It's up to the arresting officer and the judge hearing your case to determine what constitutes reckless driving, as the law does not state how fast you must be going over the limit or list out specific actions. Because the law is so subjective, fighting your case may be possible.
