Mooresville Area Reckless Driving Defense Lawyer

North Carolina police and highway patrol officers have great discretion when it comes to issuing a reckless driving citation. The law includes phrases like "willful and wanton disregard" and "without due caution and circumspection," making judgment a big factor. If you have been charged with this offense, what all are you up against? Should you fight it?

Turn To A Results-Focused Statesville Careless Driving Defense Attorney

If you have been cited for reckless driving — sometimes called careless driving — it is very important to speak with a knowledgeable traffic defense lawyer. Reckless driving is actually more than a traffic ticket. It is a misdemeanor criminal charge, and the consequences for you could be very serious. Just paying the fine is pleading guilty, and you must consider that:

  • Reckless driving is a four-point violation if you have a standard driver's license and a five-point violation if you are driving on a commercial driver's license — in a system that will level an automatic license suspension for incurring 12 points in any three-year period.
  • If you were also charged with speeding, failure to stop or yield, or any other additional violations, your license could be in immediate jeopardy.
