Reckless Driving

Nassau County Reckless Driving Lawyer

A reckless driving charge is a misdemeanor which could permanently affect your driving record. In Nassau County and across New York, police officers assign reckless driving charges in a variety of situations, including any type of behavior they believe endangers someone else on the road.

In some situations, police even write multiple tickets to cover the extent of the unsafe behavior. For example, an individual could receive tickets for speeding and reckless driving at the same time.

Each traffic ticket you receive results in more points against your driver’s license, which makes it critical to work with an experienced lawyer to fight every charge.

At Lerner & Lerner, P.C., we understand the lasting effect traffic tickets have on our clients, and we fight aggressively to have the charges reduced or dropped entirely. Our two attorneys are both former prosecutors and have more than 70 years of combined legal experience. We provide the defense individuals throughout Nassau County need when facing charges for reckless or careless driving.

What Constitutes Reckless Driving?

In New York, the term “reckless driving” is often used as a catchall term to include any traffic offense that puts other people’s lives at risk. Reckless driving can include:

  • Excessive speeding
  • Changing lanes in an unsafe manner
  • Tailgating
  • Improper turns

Regardless of the reason a reckless driving charge was given, the penalty is the same. In New York, a reckless driving conviction means you accrue five points against your driver’s license and a possible criminal conviction.
