Reckless Driving Laws & Penalties
According to the Texas Transportation Code, reckless driving is defined as operating a vehicle with a willful and wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property. This could be interpreted as driving too fast for conditions, driving significantly over the speed limit, or weaving in-and-out of traffic and running red lights.
A reckless driving charge often requires that an offender performed more than one action which endangered other motorists, passengers, pedestrians, or property. You can be charged with this criminal offense on public roads, parking lots, garages, or other areas available to the public.
As we mentioned before, reckless driving is a misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum jail sentence of 30 days and a fine of up to $200. However, you do not have to accept a criminal traffic charge with the help of our Harris County traffic ticket attorneys.
