Reckless and Careless Driving Defense
Many are confused by reckless and careless driving charges. Hence, it is important to understand the difference. Here’s a good tip for you if you’ve been charged with either of these. Talk to one of our lawyers about the details of this charge.
Careless Driving is an individual charge which is much less serious. It’s similar to other kinds of civil traffic tickets. However, this charge can have an impact on your driving rights. This is oftentimes associated with accidents. Examples of this could be if you were not able to consider road conditions or you were distracted by your cellphone. A lane change may have been considered to be done improperly. Other violations may be deemed as careless driving as well.
Reckless Driving is a far more serious charge. This is classified as a criminal traffic offense. This includes heavier fines and suspension as with other serious charges. Furthermore, this can also appear on your criminal records. There are many reasons for reckless driving charges. For example, highway racing, road rage and aggressive driving, among others. Such causes are offenses that put other drivers at risk.
