Traffic Infraction Attorneys with 20+ Years Experience
In Connecticut, reckless driving involves knowingly driving in a manner that puts others at significant risk. Reckless driving is not explicitly defined by the law, which means that a reckless driving charge can be subjective and is left up to the judgment of law enforcement. If you have been ticketed for reckless driving, you should consult an experienced traffic ticket lawyer who can review your case and help you determine whether you have grounds to fight the charge. With expensive fines, potential loss of driving privileges, and even jail time at stake, you should not simply accept the ticket without discussing your case with a lawyer.
Examples of reckless driving include:
- Driving 20 mph over any posted speed limit OR over 85 mph
- Texting while driving
- Erratic driving behavior (such as weaving between lanes, failing to stop at red lights, sudden stops, starts, and turns, etc.)
DUI & “Wet Reckless”
With the right representation, drivers who have been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) may be able to have their charges negotiated down to reckless driving, or “wet reckless.” This is essentially a conviction for reckless driving that involves alcohol, but which holds less severe penalties than DUI. To see whether this is a possibility in your case, please call The Sills Law Firm as soon as possible to discuss your case with one of our Connecticut DUI attorneys.
