Orlando Reckless Driving Defense Lawyer
Vigorous Defense Against Criminal Traffic Charges In Central Florida, Including Reckless Driving
Under Florida law, you can be charged with reckless driving if an officer judges you were operating a vehicle with disregard for the safety of others. Traveling at a seriously excessive speed or losing control of your car, truck or motorcycle are some of the more common reasons cited for a reckless driving charge.
Reckless driving is typically a serious misdemeanor criminal charge with far greater penalties than basic traffic violations. If you damaged another car or other property, you could be sentenced to up to six months in jail. If someone was seriously injured, you are looking at a possible felony conviction with penalties of up to five years in jail and a $5,000 fine.
Are You Accused Of Drag Racing Or Other Actions Covered By The Racing Law?
Florida also has a law against racing that can be very broadly applied, covering actions as common as speeding up to prevent another car from passing — and even resulting in charges against a passenger as well as the driver.
Pleading guilty or being convicted at trial for reckless driving or racing can bring a driver's license suspension of up to two years, heavy fines and even seizure of your vehicle under some circumstances. As with a DUI conviction in Florida, steep insurance rate increases are virtually certain, and if you need to try to save a commercial driver's license, your need for a strong, focused defense attorney is clear.
