Being charged with reckless driving in Arizona is a serious criminal traffic violation. In section 28-693 of the Arizona Revised Statutes, reckless driving is defined as:
- A person who drives a vehicle in reckless disregard for the safety of persons or property is guilty of reckless driving.
- A person convicted of reckless driving is guilty of a class 2 misdemeanor
Someone who is charged with reckless driving can experience penalties such as jail time, 8 points against your driver license, can cause an increase in car insurance rates, fines, and suspension of driving privileges. If a person has a prior history of reckless driving within a 24-month period you can be charged as a class 1misdemeanor. The State takes criminal traffic violations very seriously and given the possibility for jail time, steep fines, possible increase in insurance rates, and loss of driving privileges, it is advantageous to seek the advice and representation of an experienced criminal defense lawyer who can launch an aggressive defense on your behalf.
