Younger drivers, especially motorcycle riders, are the most likely to face charges for reckless driving or racing. Whether this is due to some bias against young drivers and motorcycle riders or not, it is a fact.
Reckless driving and racing are both serious charges that carry significant consequences. Both of these charges are sentenced similar to a DUI charge.
Some of the consequences you face if you are convicted of reckless driving include:
- Up to a year in jail
- Up to a $5,000 fine
- Mandatory 30-day drivers license suspension
- Requirement to carry SR (high risk) insurance
Are You Facing Charges For Racing?
Racing is a charge that falls under the umbrella of reckless driving. If the police believe you were trying to race another vehicle, you will face the same potential consequences as if you were charged with reckless driving.
You Need To Take Reckless Driving And Racing Charges Seriously
