The State of Georgia defines reckless driving as, “driving any vehicle with a reckless disregard for the safety of persons or property.” With other laws, like running a red light, there are specific parameters that define what it takes to violate a law. Reckless driving laws are vague compared to other traffic violations in Georgia.
It is really difficult to narrow down exactly what represents reckless driving, because there are so many things that an officer can subjectively decide that constitutes reckless driving. What we do know is that the consequences for a reckless driving ticket can be severe. Common consequences include:
- Jail time
- Community service
- 4 points on your record
