Reckless driving is more than a simple traffic violation. In fact, reckless driving is a criminal matter under the laws of the state of New York, as it is classified as a misdemeanor. You can be charged with reckless driving if you are deemed to be operating your vehicle in a reckless manner by the police officer in the case. That subjective nature makes a reckless driving charge hotly debated in court, as it typically comes down to the testimony of the office against the testimony of the accused. To fight your reckless driving charge with an experienced attorney, contact David Galison today.
The penalties for a reckless driving conviction are very serious. To start with, you will have a criminal record because of the misdemeanor charge. Also, you will have five points added to your driving record and have to pay a fine of up to $300. Additionally, you are likely to see your insurance rates increase as a result of the conviction.
It would be a mistake to simply sign off on your reckless driving charge and accept the punishments. By working together with David Galison, you can organize a logical defense and have your day in court. You have rights in this matter, so use them and argue for your side of the case.
