Reckless Driving

Reckless driving is a crime in all 50 states. In most situations, reckless driving is punished as a misdemeanor. But when reckless driving leads to property damage or someone being injured, the responsible motorist can sometimes be charged with a felony. Punishments for a reckless driving conviction might involve probation, fines, community service, and jail time. Convicted motorists may also face license suspension and increased insurance rate.
