Whether it is running a red light or driving with a broken taillight, traffic violations can come in a variety of forms in New York. While such offenses typically are punishable by only fines, other crimes – such as reckless driving – lead to more severe penalties, including jail or prison time.
If you have been arrested and charged with reckless driving in New York, our Nassau County criminal defense attorneys are prepared to fight for you. We can investigate your arrest, determine if law enforcement followed lawful protocol, and gather evidence necessary to build an aggressive and customized defense strategy just for you.
If a person commits and is arrested for any one of these reckless driving acts, it is considered a misdemeanor offense that is punishable by a jail sentence of up to 30 days for a first-time offense, 90 days for a second offense, and 180 days for a third offense. In addition, it also results in hundreds or thousands of dollars in fines and five points to your driver’s license.
