Los Angeles Reckless Driving Defense Attorney

Fearless Representation for Speed Contest Tickets

Reckless driving is a serious traffic offense that is somewhat subjective in nature – there is not a cut-and-dry definition of what is or isn't reckless driving. However, California PC 23103 provides that a person who “behaves with an intentional disregard for other's safety" on the road is driving recklessly.

Reckless driving charges can lead to serious fines, possible jail time, and several points on your license, depending on the circumstances of the situation. At TKT REP, we have experience fighting traffic offenses involving reckless driving as well as speed contests.

Defending Reckless Driving Charges

Most of the time – unless someone suffered injuries or death as a result – reckless driving is charged as a misdemeanor. A misdemeanor reckless driving offense can carry up to six months in prison, two years of probation, $2,500 in fines, and between two and eight points on your license.

A few examples of reckless driving include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Driving 20 mph over the speed limit
  • Weaving between lanes
  • Failing to stop at red/yellow lights
  • Sudden stops
  • Failing to use signals continuously
  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving

Speed Contest Charges

California VC 23109 outlines a specific type of reckless driving: Speed contests, or the exhibition of speed. Engaging in a speed contest – or racing another vehicle – on a road or highway in California is a misdemeanor offense. Quite often, our firm is able to defend this kind of charge by arguing that the prosecution has insufficient evidence to prove that the driver was engaging in a speed contest.
