Reckless Driving is a traffic criminal misdemeanor that cannot be expunged if convicted. This charge must be defended aggressively. The prosecution bears the burden of proving, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the vehicle was driven with a wanton or willful disregard for the safety of other persons or property. If found guilty, a reckless driving conviction will wreak havoc. An attorney should be retained to protect your driving privleges and to be employed in a driving capacity. This is imparative, especially, if you are a Commercial Driving License (CDL) Holder or a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) Driver.
Reckless Driving, as outlined in MCL 257.626, is punishable by by imprisonment for up to 93 days and/or a fine of not more than $500 or both. Reckless Driving adds just as many points to the driving abstract as a DUI, OUID, or a negligent homicide accident.
What is the difference between Reckless and Careless Driving? Careless Driving is negligent operation of a vehicle, minus the wanton disregard. It carries less points, but looks almost as bad on a driving record, and drives up insurance astromically. This charge should also be defended zealously.
