Reckless driving is an unclassified misdemeanor offense in New York State, and, if convicted, you can face the following:

  • Up to five points on your driver license
  • A possible increase in your auto insurance
  • A criminal record

What are the penalties for reckless driving?

Reckless driving is a serious charge that results in a criminal record if convicted. A conviction for reckless driving results in five points on your driving record, which significantly increases your insurance premiums. You may also receive fines of $100–$300, plus a fee of $70 for first-time offenders. In New York, your driving privileges may be suspended if you receive 11 points in an 18-month time frame.

What constitutes reckless driving in New York State?

Reckless driving is rather subjective and serves as a catch-all for many different driving infractions such as the following:

  • Talking on a cell phone
  • Texting while driving
  • Using any mobile device
  • Eating or drinking

Because reckless driving is considered a criminal offense, many district attorneys require a court appearance and do not allow you to handle the offense via mail. This makes fighting a charge of reckless driving even more challenging. Judges are generally less flexible when negotiating a criminal reckless driving case, which is why you need an aggressive defense lawyer to represent you.
