Chandler Reckless Driving Lawyer

Reckless driving under A.R.S. 28-693 can be charged as a class 1 or class 2 misdemeanor depending on whether it’s a first or subsequent offense. A.R.S. 28-693 states that a person who drives a vehicle in reckless disregard for the safety of persons or property is guilty under A.R.S. 28-693. A first-time offender will face a class 2 misdemeanor conviction. In addition to potential jail time, a judge may also require someone convicted of reckless driving to surrender their license for up to 90 days.

If you are a second-time offender, or if you have been convicted of similar crimes, such as driving under the influence, within the past 24 months, you will face additional, more severe penalties. A second time-offender can be convicted of a class 1 misdemeanor, which is the most serious misdemeanor classification. Furthermore, a second-time offender will not be eligible for probation, pardon, suspension of sentence, or release on any basis until they have served at least 20 days in jail. Additionally, rather than a 90-day suspension, a second-time offender will face a one-year license suspension.

If you have knowingly aided or abetted another person in committing reckless driving, you might also face liability under A.R.S. 28-693.

Reckless driving can include:

  • Road rage
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving at a high rate of speed that is well over the speed limit
  • Swerving in and out of a lane
  • Cutting off other drivers
  • Running a stop light or sign
  • Failing to yield to pedestrians
  • Tailgating
  • Wrong way driving
  • Driving too fast for road conditions

Many people may not take misdemeanor crimes seriously, but a conviction of misdemeanor reckless driving in Arizona can have severe penalties. These penalties can include jail time, fines, and a driver’s license suspension.
