Queens Reckless Driving Lawyers

Reckless driving is a very serious driving offense in the state of New York. If you get a reckless driving ticket while in Queens, find an experienced lawyer to help you explore your options. Reckless driving is considered a misdemeanor, which means you will have this infraction on your driving record. It is a moving violation that can cost you a chunk of money. Not only do you have to worry about paying a fine or restitution, your insurance rates will likely skyrocket.

Reckless driving under the New York traffic statutes means operating a vehicle or any other of type of vehicle in an unsafe manner on the streets, roads and highways. Examples of this in Queens include speeding, failure to yield, disobeying school zone laws, running stop signs, running red lights and other traffic violations. If you receive a ticket for reckless driving, you need to get a lawyer to help you with your case.

Prosecutors feel that they can make a good reckless driving case against you are perceived to have committed the offense without regard for others. For example, if you are accused of running a red light, that could prove you’re negligent, but if you were not impaired by liquor or drugs, it cannot be proven that you were reckless. In most cases, a reckless driving charge will not land you jail time. But you will receive a ticket and a court date. If you are worried about the blemish on your driving record and how it will affect your insurance, seek out the help of an experienced attorney.

Many people wonder what the police is allowed to do if you are stopped for reckless driving. Police are well within their right to search your car, if you are charged with reckless driving. Police can search any bags, suitcases, your person and anything else. This can open the door to a whole different can of worms. This is especially true if you are holding drugs or have a weapon.

If you already have a criminal record, how will it affect you personally? There is the possibility that you can have your license suspended. If this happens, you will not be able to drive and you will have to rely upon public transportation or someone driving you to your destinations. And if your insurance rates are hiked up, you may be in a position where you can no longer afford it. Talk it over with an experienced reckless driving attorney. They may be able to help you negotiate a lower sentence or no sentence at all.

The state of New York has a Driver Violation Point System that is monitored by the Department of Motor Vehicles. Under this system, your record will be scrutinized for risk factors. If you have too many points based on tickets or violations, you could lose your right to drive in the state. The only way you can get tickets dismissed off your record is by retaining an experienced reckless driving attorney. Only an attorney who is well-versed in the state of New York’s driving laws can help you launch a good defense.

A reckless driving record in Queens can add up on your point system. Too many can spell your driving privileges being revoked for 18 months. If you are at this point where you feel that you may lose your driving privileges, contact an attorney today. Let them help you figure out your options. Go in for a private consultation so they can find a workable solution for you. Don’t sleep on your rights. Call a Queens attorney to look over your case today.
