Chicago Reckless Driving Lawyer: Skillful Defense

Reckless driving is a Class A misdemeanor. This charge can be a catch-all for police officers, to include swerving, weaving in and out of traffic, driving at excessive speeds, or any driving behavior that the officer believes is "willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property." Possible criminal penalties are up to 364 days in county jail, fines up to $2,500, up to 2 years probation, and court supervision. Your driver's license could be suspended or revoked, depending on your driving record, and your insurance company could raise your automobile insurance rates.
