A Legal Ally Helping You Overcome Reckless Driving Charges
Some traffic tickets are more serious than others. For example, a speeding ticket can result in a fine and higher insurance rates. If you have multiple tickets, you may even lose your driver’s license. If charged with reckless driving, however, the consequences are much higher. Now you face suspension of your license and a jail sentence of up to 30 days for a first offense. For a second offense, you can be sent to jail for up to one year.

In Connecticut, reckless driving is driving that creates a substantial and unjustifiable risk of harm to other drivers or pedestrians and a conscious disregard or indifference to that risk. Examples of reckless driving are driving at speeds in excess of 85 miles an hour and driving that endangers the life of another person.
The opinion of the arresting officer can make the difference as to whether a violation is charged as reckless driving or a less serious charge such as speeding. Our lawyers are not afraid to challenge police reports and represent you in trial if necessary.
Reckless driving requires a mandatory court appearance. Our lawyers will attend your hearing with you to protect your interests.
