Determined Legal Defense for Idaho Falls Clients Facing Reckless Driving Charges

If you’re facing a reckless or inattentive driving case in Idaho Falls, there may be some potentially harsh punishment ahead of you, including license suspension, severe fines and possible jail time. Bird Law Offices can help you beat your reckless driving charges in court, or try to reduce the penalties.

Defending Idaho Falls Residents Against Reckless and Inattentive Driving Charges

The penalties you may face for reckless driving generally get more severe with each repeat offense. If you’re facing your first reckless driving conviction, you may incur punishments that include a 30-day license suspension, a six-month jail sentence, and up to $1,000 in fines. Punishment for repeated convictions could include a 90-day license suspension, a year in jail and/or $2,000 in fines.

Idaho law distinguishes between inattentive driving and reckless driving. Drivers are charged with distracted driving due to conduct that’s inattentive, careless or imprudent instead of heedless or wanton, or when their conduct causes only slight danger to people or property. But an inattentive driving charge can have consequences—potential penalties include up to 90 days in jail and/or a maximum of $300 in fines.

Preventing Drivers License Suspension in Idaho Falls

Idaho courts maintain a penalty points system that correlates points on your record to each traffic violation. If you accrue 12 points within a year, your license gets suspended for 30 days, which could affect your life in many tangible ways, especially if it’s your commercial drivers’ license (CDL). Even if you’re not driving for work or using a commercial vehicle at the time of your violation, your CDL can be penalized.
