What is reckless driving?

In the state of Florida, reckless driving is a fairly broad statute. Sometimes it can encompass behavior such as high rates of speed or erratic driving patterns. In other circumstances reckless driving may be an outcome of a negotiated plea in the course of a DUI case. There are a number of advantages as to why a defense attorney may push for a reckless driving offense versus a DUI offense, so reckless is one of those statutes that’s written pretty broadly and can be utilized in a number of ways to prosecute depending on if the facts and circumstances fit.
