Services: Reckless/Careless Driving
Careless driving and reckless driving citations are often confused. However, there are some important distinctions. While both citations indicate that a motor vehicle is being operated in an irresponsible fashion, the potential penalties are very different.
In Florida, careless driving is defined as failing to drive a motor vehicle in a careful and prudent manner. There is no analysis as to the driver’s state of mind. Conversely, reckless driving is defined as driving a motor vehicle with willful or wanton disregard for the safety of other people and/or property. The intent of the driver should be taken into account when issuing a reckless driving ticket.
Careless driving can carry a hefty fine and points on your license but it is not a criminal infraction, whereas reckless driving is a criminal offense that can carry a jail sentence in addition to fines and points.Click Here to Get Started
