What Is a Reckless Driving Charge in Texas?
Reckless driving in Texas is characterized as operating a motor vehicle with disregard for the safety of other motorists, pedestrians, passengers, or property. This can include, but is not limited to, driving too fast for the road conditions, weaving in and out of traffic, or running red lights.
What Is the Penalty for Reckless Driving in Texas?
A reckless driving offense in Texas is one of several traffic citations that carry criminal penalties instead of just a citation. These charges are typically classified as misdemeanors, and carry no more than 30 days in jail with fines up to $200.00, demerit points depending on the severity of the offense, and the possibility of a suspended license. However, a reckless driving charge can become a felony in some cases, if there is death or serious injury is involved.
