If you received a ticket for reckless driving in Queens or NY, call us.

If you have been ticketed for reckless driving in Queens or NYS, you will want to speak with one of the lawyers at My Tickets NYC. Reckless driving offenses are very serious and can have significant consequences.  According to NY Vehicle and Traffic Law 1212:

“Reckless driving shall mean driving or using any motor vehicle, motorcycle or any other vehicle propelled by any power other than muscular power or any appliance or accessory thereof in a manner which unreasonably interferes with the free and proper use of the public highway, or unreasonably endangers users of the public highway. Reckless driving is prohibited. Every person violating this provision shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.”

In essence, it is a violation of New York’s reckless driving law if you drive any vehicle in a way that interferes with the free use of the road or unreasonably endangers others. If you purposely ignore the traffic laws and disregard the potential consequences and/or safety of others, you can be ticketed for reckless driving. Additionally, if you are purposely driving in a manner that can cause an accident, you can receive a ticket for reckless driving. Infractions such as excessively exceeding the speed limit (over 25 MPH beyond the speed limit), racing, trying to elude a police officer, or any other action a police officer deems as excessively dangerous, can cause you to receive a ticket for reckless driving.
