Every time that you slide behind the wheel of your car and ignore the signs posted on the road, you risk facing reckless driving charges in the future. If your driving didn’t lead to any deaths or injuries, you face a misdemeanor charge, which comes with a minimum fine of $250 and a maximum sentence of six months in jail. If the incident led to an injury or death, you face a maximum $5,000 fine and up to six years in prison. Before you decide that you can handle those charges on your own, find out how the Law Office of Cal Potter can help.
