Depending on the alleged speed or infraction, the penalties can impact you for a long time. If you are found guilty of speeding, your driving record and insurance will be affected.

Reckless Driving

When a driver willfully and wantonly disregards the safety of others on the road, they may be issued a reckless driving ticket. This is a serious offense that encompasses many violations, including speeding, driving under the influence, and other violations that put fellow drivers and pedestrians at risk. It is generally issued for drivers found guilty of a DUI. At the discretion of the presiding judge, it may be issued for someone who exceeds 100 miles per hour. A reckless driving ticket comes with severe fines and the possibility of a license suspension for an indeterminate period of time.

Plea-bargaining Traffic Tickets

Most tickets can be plea-bargained. Some exceptions may include severe tickets, such as a DUI. Prosecutors are limited in their ability to negotiate and can only downgrade a ticket to a related offense. For example, a speeding ticket cannot be downgraded to a ticket for failure to fix a headlight.
