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.

I hired Attorneys For Freedom in 2020 for a very serious matter involving my significant other. I... spent a couple of hours calling around looking for attorneys and the ONLY attorney willing to talk to me on behalf of my significant other was Andy Marcantel. It was end of day and he took the time, to speak to me and to myself, my significant other and his family, the next day as well.I knew immediately, I wanted to hire Andy for this serious matter. My significant other was facing serious time and we were both terrified. I trusted Andy and his team to get the absolute, best, possible outcome. From the very beginning, Andy was nothing short of truthful, communicative, professional, informative, kind and hilarious.I would email Andy late at night with concerns or questions and he would communicate back immediately just to let me know he was scheduling us a meeting the next day to go over everything. For almost 2 years, Andy and his team worked diligently on this case and about 3 weeks ago, it went to court for the last time and my significant other received the BEST outcome possible. Considering what he was facing, I will never be able to thank Andy properly for his work but what I can do, is let EVERYONE know, if you’re in need of a law firm, I HIGHLY recommend Attorneys For Freedom. You will not be disappointed.There is so much integrity, kindness and care in that office.Attorneys For Freedom holds true to their mission statement and their values.Andy, I cannot thank you enough for everything and the time and effort you took to ensure we understood every single part of the case and the justice system. I’m eternally grateful to you.read more

I had my doubts at the beginning, Andy, is one of the best guys I have known. He answers every... question I ask, he is there from start to finish. He has a client now for the rest of my life, if anything were to happen. I cannot be more happier with the way these guys run their businessread more
