Reckless Driving

Reckless Driving in Nevada

Reckless driving in the state of Nevada is a serious traffic offense that is defined as the operation of a vehicle with willful disregard for the safety of others or with conscious indifference to the consequences. This offense is a direct threat to public safety, involving driving behaviors that risk harm to individuals or property.

Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 484B.653 lays out the specifics of what constitutes reckless driving in the state.

How We Fight Reckless Driving Charges:

  1. Challenging Evidence: Our defense attorneys meticulously review the evidence presented against our clients. We analyze the events leading up to the alleged offense, focusing on law enforcement observations and eyewitness accounts. By contesting the reliability of this evidence, we aim to weaken the prosecution's case.

  2. Questioning Law Enforcement Conduct: We evaluate how law enforcement acted during the traffic stop or incident. If officers failed to follow the correct procedures or lacked probable cause for the stop, or if there were any infringements on your rights, we use this to strengthen your defense.

  3. Disputing Alleged Recklessness: For a successful reckless driving charge, the prosecution must prove your actions displayed a willful disregard for safety. We will work to counter their arguments, potentially showing your actions weren't as severe or dangerous as they claim.

  4. Presenting Alternative Explanations: We might suggest other reasons for your driving behaviors, perhaps blaming road conditions, weather, or unforeseen events. By giving plausible explanations, we aim to further counter the prosecution's claims.

Potential Penalties for Reckless Driving:

  • Misdemeanor Offense: Penalties can include:
    • Fines up to $1,000.
    • Jail time up to 6 months.
    • Possible driver's license suspension.
    • Attendance at traffic school or other court requirements.

However, the specific consequences can differ based on the individual circumstances of the case, any involved aggravating factors, and your previous driving record.
