Defending Rexburg Residents Against Reckless and Inattentive Driving Charges
A first-time reckless driving guilty verdict can incur penalties that include getting your license suspended for 30 days, a six-month jail sentence and up to $1,000 in fines. Repeated reckless driving convictions may result in a 90-day license suspension, a year in jail and/or $2,000 in fines.
Inattentive driving is distinctly different from reckless driving according to Idaho law. Drivers get this charge when their conduct is inattentive, careless or imprudent instead of than heedless or wanton, or when their conduct cause only slight danger to people or property. However, an inattentive driving charge has its consequences, including up to 90 days in jail and/or a maximum of $300 in fines.
