What Qualifies as Reckless Driving?

In Connecticut, reckless driving is a serious moving traffic violation that is charged as a criminal offense. This type of driving involves irreverence or indifference toward the safety of others and their property.

Generally, a driver may be charged with reckless driving if:

  • The vehicle is driven in a manner that puts others at significant risk
  • The vehicle is traveling at a speed that endangers the life of another
  • The vehicle is going over 85 mph

How Reckless Driving Charges Can Impact You

First-time reckless driving offenders can be fined in between $100 to $300. They may also face up to 30 days in jail. Subsequent offenders will incur higher penalties.

In addition to fines and imprisonment, those convicted of reckless driving will have their license suspended by the DMV for a period of no less than 30 days. Repeat offenders will suffer license suspension for at least 60 days.
