How to Beat Reckless Driving in Florida
Speed alone is usually not sufficient to establish a reckless driving charge. Your speed must be truly excessive – i.e. 80 mph in a 35-mph zone – for speeding to be the sole reason for your reckless driving charge. It can contribute to your charge, but it cannot be the only factor.
Someone must be driving with a willful and wanton disregard for their own safety and the safety of those around them. Ordinary negligence will not suffice to make the grounds for a reckless driving charge. The driver must have a willful disregard for the consequences of their actions in order for a charge to be levied.
Finally, the reckless driving charge must be against the driver of the vehicle. If you were not operating the vehicle, then you cannot be found guilty of this charge.
The authorities will conduct an investigation into your driving. They will analyze your actions, the surrounding circumstances, and whether or not it was foreseeable that death or serious bodily harm would occur.
Our Florida reckless driving defense attorneys can fight for you. We have the resources and skill necessary to dispute the prosecution’s case against you. The investigation that law enforcement undertakes cannot have any holes in it. That means that their testimony and witness statements must be consistent and valid. We can point out flaws in the opposition’s case.
