Reckless Driving

Reckless Driving

Reckless Driving is a serious charge. It is a Class 2 Traffic Misdemeanor Offense and a conviction may result in a scheduled fine of $150.00 to $300.00 plus court costs and surcharges, a possible jail sentence of 10 to 90 days (usually only ordered in cases where there are aggravating factors, such as injury to a person or reckless indifference to the safety of others), restitution, community or useful public service, probation for one year or longer, and other possible requirements by the court, with an assessment of 8 points to your driver’s license. In some cases, a conviction for Reckless Driving may affect your automobile insurance coverage or premium rates for years to come.

Increased Possible Penalties For Subsequent Convictions

Upon a second or subsequent conviction, in addition to the possible court penalties and requirements provided above, the maximum possible fine is increased to $1,000.00 and the possible maximum jail sentence is increased to 6 months.

Alert to All Drivers – HTO Strike
Important: A conviction for Reckless Driving counts as one strike toward an Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO) Restraint and will result in the loss of driving privileges for a period of five years if certain conditions are present. Be sure that you fully understand the consequences of a conviction for Reckless Driving on your driving privileges.
Commercial Drivers License CDL Alert: Serious Offense

Important: A conviction for Reckless Driving, if the driver was operating a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) at the time of the violation, is a “Serious Offense” under the Commercial Drivers License CDL Program and will result in a 30-day, 60-day or longer Disqualification of the CDL if certain conditions are present. Be sure that you fully understand the consequences of this charge on your CDL driving privileges.

Alert to All Drivers – Requirement for Payment of Restitution
Important: Colorado law provides that “any person convicted of a Class 1 or Class 2 Misdemeanor Traffic Offense — such as Reckless Driving — shall be required to pay restitution” to the person who incurred damages as a result of the violation. See C.R.S. § 42-4-1701. Restitution is payment to the injured party in order to make that person whole again in such a position that the person was in before the incident, and includes payment for economic damages (e.g., property damage, medical bills, or lost wages) and non-economic damages (e.g., pain and suffering, disfigurement, or loss of enjoyment of life). Be sure that you fully understand the consequences of a conviction for the charge of Reckless Driving.
Alert to All Drivers With Professional Licenses – Duty to Report, If Conviction
Important: Some licensed professionals — doctors, dentists, nurses, chiropractors, therapists, and attorneys, etc. — may be required under state regulations to report criminal misdemeanor convictions — such as Reckless Driving — to the appropriate governmental licensing agency.
