Reckless driving is when a person operates a vehicle in a public area such as, a highway or parking lot; in “willful or wanton” disregard for the safety of any person or property. Reckless driving is an “intent crime”; the driver is aware of what they are doing. Some examples of reckless driving are tailgating; weaving in and out of traffic at high speeds; spinning the vehicle in circles (donuts).

Reckless Driving Defenses:

Lack of Intent: The driver’s intentions must be ” in willful or wanton disregard” for the safety of any person/property. The prosecutor must prove the defendant operated the vehicle in “willful or wanton disregard”.

Not a Public Area: The vehicle must have been operated in a public area at the time of the offense.
