Reckless Driving Defense Lawyer in San Antonio
About Reckless Driving Charges
In Texas, reckless driving is a crime, a class one misdemeanor, and carries with it substantial penalties. These include up to one year of jail time and fines up to $2,500 dollars, as well as the potentially substantial increase to one's insurance rates over several years. There are times when a driver is charged with reckless driving by a law enforcement officer simply due to his or her involvement in a serious accident, when in fact the accused was not recklessly driving at all. Reckless driving can also be charged as a result of speeding, in excess of 80 miles per hour in a 65 zone, or 20 or mph over the speed limit in all other zones.
Skilled ticket defense counsel may be able to help drastically mitigate or even bring about outright dismissal of reckless driving charges. If you or someone in your family faces the charge of reckless driving, it is imperative that you immediately contact a San Antonio traffic ticket lawyer at once in order to get the knowledgeable legal protection you will need for your case.
