What are the penalties for reckless driving?

Under Pennsylvania’s driving law, reckless driving assumes intent – officers must be able to prove that you were knowingly and deliberately irresponsible behind the wheel. If the offense caused death or injury of another person, you can expect the penalties will be more severe. In the aftermath of being charged with reckless driving, it’s important to note that a charge or an arrest is not a conviction. There is still a chance to challenge your charge and build the defense you need.

If convicted, penalties for reckless driving can include:

  • A minimum fine of $200
  • Suspended license for 6 months
  • If the offense caused the death of another individual, you may face up to a year in jail and $25,000 in fines
