What is Considered Reckless Driving
California Vehicle Code 23103 is an information-packed code that provides definitions and many examples of reckless driving; but, in lawmaker’s terms. Simply put, reckless driving is defined as operating a motor vehicle with complete disregard for public safety. Public safety is defined as putting the safety and/or property at risk of injury or damage. The offense of reckless driving, as defined by statute, is a misdemeanor offense punishable by 90 days in jail, a fine of at least $145.00, and two points placed on a person’s driving record.
