Reckless Driving in Seattle
Many people mistakenly believe that a reckless driving conviction is not such a big deal. Nothing could be further from the truth. A reckless driving conviction could put you in jail for up to one year and cost you $5,000 in fines. It also incurs a mandatory 30 day driver’s license suspension, which will mean having to carry expensive high-risk (SR-22) auto insurance for three years after it is reinstated. Obviously, it makes sense to do everything you can to minimize these penalties, and our Seattle reckless driving lawyers have the experience and dedication required to help.
A person accused of reckless driving in Seattle is said to have been driving with willful disregard for the safety of other people and their property. Still, the prosecution must prove this beyond any reasonable doubt.
