Understanding Reckless Driving Laws in Georgia

While each person has a unique idea of what reckless driving entails, the law has its own definition. In Georgia, reckless driving is defined as driving a vehicle in reckless disregard for the safety of people or property. This definition is interpreted differently by law enforcement, attorneys, judges, and juries.

Some examples of reckless driving include:

  • Excessive speeding
  • Aggressively tailgating
  • Failing to obey stop signs, traffic signals, or yield signs
  • Illegally passing on the shoulder
  • Driving too fast for the conditions
  • Weaving in and out of traffic

Is Reckless Driving a Misdemeanor in Georgia?

Reckless driving is a misdemeanor in Georgia and may result in consequences, including up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. In addition, four points will be assigned to your license unless the judge agrees to a no-contest plea. Drivers who are under the age of 21 will have their licenses automatically suspended.

Can Reckless Driving Be Reduced in GA?

There is a possibility that reckless driving can be reduced in GA if there is substantial evidence, in your case, causing a reduction in reckless driving. Our experienced DUI lawyer can locate any issues, apply them to your defense strategy, and negotiate reckless driving. However, Georgia only gives 30 days to prove any evidence.
