I was passing a slowing moving vehicle. When I tried to pass the car speed up so I speed up to get pass them. When I was moving back over an officer pulled me Over and ticketed me for 66 in a 45. He said he just put it as a traffic violation and not a reckless driving ticket and that I could pay at the court house if I didn’t want to go to court. The ticket say traffic violation. Not Criminal offense. Do you think that I would be charged for reckless driving?
I would want to know EXACTLY what the officer wrote, not a recollection second hand.....take it to any local traffic law attorney--could be you caught a HUGE break (even though your driving instincts were wrong).
