A little about the charge of reckless driving

Posted by attorney James Cummings

Hi! It's James Cummings, the law firm of Cummings & Cummings, and I want to talk to you a little bit about the charge of reckless driving. A reckless driving charge can be found in North Carolina General Statute, Chapter 20 Section 140. In my office we see lots of different kinds of charges of reckless driving. Sometimes someone's charged with reckless driving just because they're speeding too high or because they've squealed their tires. In those cases, you have a strong argument that the conduct that's been charged is not actually reckless driving. There's a variety of different factual scenarios that can lead you to be charged with reckless driving, but in each of them they carry one common denominator and that's four points on your license, which can have a severe impact on your insurance. Give us a call at the law firm of Cummings & Cummings today. We'd be glad to talk to you about your reckless driving ticket. The initial consultation is always free and confidential.
