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 just left USCCA and signed up with AOR today after much research, and watching a gazillion... youtube videos from all of the various providers of CCW protection. I believe that by becoming a client of an actual law firm, I am on substantially more solid ground regarding the quality of legal assistance I will receive should I ever be involved in a self defense incident.From the first exploratory phone call that I made to AOR, to my signing on with them, all of the staff I spoke with were extremely professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and informative. They spent time answering any and all questions that I had, without any sense that they were trying to rush through the conversation. Additionally, none of the staff attempted to apply any sales pressure to join AOR as if they were used car salesmen, they simply answered questions and provided information. That was greatly appreciated.I feel much more confident in my potential legal position following a self defense incident knowing that events that would end coverage under other programs, will have no affect on my legal protection with AOR.read more
