As defined by Florida Statute section 316.192 “any person who drives any vehicle in willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property”. Practically speaking, it is the simultaneous commission of three or more citationable offenses.
The most harmful effect of a reckless driving charge is that the average person never knows that they’ve actually been arrested. The arrest is usually without him cuffs. It is known as a promise to appear. It looks like a regular traffic ticket. As a result, the average person does not get the proper representation they need.
Our office has seen a lot of complications arising from reckless driving charges in the failure to handle them properly. The increase in insurance premiums and/or the dropping of coverage. Also, The failure to properly fill out Employment and/or Immigration Licensing applications due to the failure to list previous arrests. Finally, the failure to properly prepare for trial often results in being forced to except whatever the State Attorney may offer.
