Lynnwood Reckless Driving Charges

Reckless Driving Laws

Have you been charged with reckless driving? Reckless driving in this state is a gross misdemeanor that is punishable by up to:

  • A year in jail
  • Up to $5,000 in fines
  • Driver's license suspension

In addition to incarceration, fines, and license suspension, you will also be facing increased insurance rates under SR-22 laws. SR-22 is high-risk insurance and usually fairly expensive compared to standard rates.

Speak with a Lynnwood criminal defense lawyer at DUI Heroes. If you have been charged with reckless driving, we will look for ways to reduce your charges to a traffic violation, a much less serious offense. We have many years of experience in criminal defense, especially cases involving gross misdemeanors and motor vehicle offenses.

DUI Attorney in Lynnwood

A person can be charged with reckless driving if law enforcement considers that they were driving with willful disregard for the safety of other people or property. This can include weaving in and out of lanes or even speeding. Under state laws, a person can even be charged with reckless driving for embracing another person in the car in a way that hampers their ability to operate their vehicle. It is a serious criminal offense that can result in the loss of your driving privileges for a minimum of 30 days. If your driver's license is suspended, you will be unable to obtain a hardship permit or temporary restricted license during the suspension period, and your SR-22 auto insurance will be required for three years. If you are an immigrant that has been arrested for reckless driving, it could result in your deportation. I can provide the adept legal representation you will need when fighting these charges and can be relied on to seek the best results possible.

Contact a Lynnwood attorney for capable legal counsel and representation if you have been arrested for reckless driving.
