Understanding Your Reckless Driving Charges in Atlanta, Georgia
Reckless driving is a more serious traffic violation that may be charged as a misdemeanor offense. A defendant may face up to 12 months in a county correctional facility as well as steep fines if convicted. In addition, he or she will face having to live with a criminal record, which can hinder employment and financial opportunities. Reckless driving is also a 4-point traffic offense, meaning that 4 points may be assessed on a driver's record for a conviction of this kind. These points may result in increased insurance premiums, and if a driver accumulates 15 points within a certain time period, he or she will face driver's license suspension.
