NYC Reckless Driving Attorney

Is Reckless Driving a Moving Violation in New York?

What should you do if you were pulled over and cited for reckless driving? In New York, reckless driving is one of the more serious types of moving violations. Other types of violations, such as speeding, are categorized as infractions.

Reckless driving violations, on the other hand, are charged as misdemeanors, which are handled in criminal court rather than the Traffic Violations Bureau. 

What is the Penalty for Reckless Driving in NYC?

In NYC, reckless driving is a severe criminal offense that can land you in prison for up to 30 days for a first offense, 90 days for a second, and 180 days for a third. You'll also face a hefty fine of up to $300 for the first offense, $525 for the second, and a whopping $1,125 for the third. 

On top of that, you'll likely lose your license and get slapped with points on your driving record, making insurance more expensive or even unobtainable.
