If you have been charged with reckless driving or racing, the penalty could be up to one year in jail, $5,000 fine, and a thirty (30) day license suspension. On top of the penalties you will have to file as a SR 22 or high risk insurance that is in place for three years.
Police can issue charges for anyone speeding over twenty (20) miles per hour over the sped limit. Reckless driving is defined as driving with willful and or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property.
You can be charged with racing even if you are not speeding. Police can compare two vehicles with the speed they are driving. You do not have to know the other driver to be charged. It is important to have a lawyer at your side when charged with racing or reckless driving.
