NY Reckless Driving Attorney
Reckless driving in New York is a misdemeanor criminal offense. This means that a motorist charged with reckless driving must make an appearance in court, and cannot simply plead guilty and pay the fine. In addition, a New York reckless driving ticket carries 5 points (the same as a passing a stopped school bus ticket and cell phone ticket), one of the highest point tickets in New York.
Reckless driving in New York is a misdemeanor offense, so drivers convicted of reckless driving can expect criminal fines, and while not likely, jail time is a remote possibility. New York reckless driving lawyers can help to make sure that you avoid these consequences and keep your driving and criminal record clean. A reckless driving lawyer can also usually appear in court without you to defend against these charges.
You can also receive a summons for Dangerous Driving. It’s similar to Reckless Driving, but isn’t considered a criminal offense.
