Fighting Reckless Driving Tickets in Raleigh

Under Section 20-149 of the North Carolina General Statutes, reckless driving is defined as operating any vehicle on any road or high way "carelessly and heedlessly in willful or wanton disregard of the rights or safety of others." The charge is usually made based on the opinion of the police officer or highway patrol trooper who observed the behavior in question, rather than on objective evidence as in a speeding ticket case. If he determined that you were operating your vehicle in a way that would likely endanger other people or without taking proper precaution to avoid an accident, you will be charged with reckless driving. Worse than a traffic ticket, you will face a class-2 misdemeanor charge that is punishable by between 1 and 60 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.

If you are convicted of reckless driving, you will also face a 4 point penalty under the point system, which can result in a 90% surcharge on your auto insurance, nearly doubling your premium. Most reckless driving convictions also come with a 12 month driver's license suspension. It is vital to avoid being found guilty, and a seasoned Raleigh traffic ticket lawyer can help you fight the ticket, to keep you out of jail and free of the costly penalties of a reckless driving conviction.
