Reckless driving is a serious motor vehicle offense in New Jersey that can land you in jail for up to 60 days, with a fine of up to $200, and leave you with five points on your driving record.
This is a very dangerous place to be, because in most instances, reckless driving isn’t charged alone.
As an add-on to a speeding charge, a DWI, or leaving the scene of an accident, you risk suspension of your license or even probation, not to mention a big bump in the price of auto insurance.
If people are hurt or property is damaged as a result of reckless driving, you may face even more serious penalties.
The best thing to do when charged with reckless driving, careless driving, or related traffic offenses is to talk to an experienced lawyer who can help protect your license and minimize your exposure to penalty.
