Reckless Driving Or Not? Ask A Queens Criminal Lawyer

The NYPD has been recently issuing numerous Reckless Driving Pink Summonses answerable in the Summons Part of New York City Criminal Courts, rather than issuing the appropriate summons for the specific Vehicle and Traffic infraction involved in the NYS Traffic Violations Bureau. So if someone was backing up their car down a one way street looking for a parking spot a few years ago, he or she might have received a traffic violation summons for driving the wrong way on a city street. Instead, today, for that same conduct, one might be issued a pink summons for a MISDEMEANOR RECKLESS DRIVING CHARGE, which is a criminal offense that can leave you with not only five points on your driving record, able to be considered a "serious driving offense" under the new DMV Regulations leading to increased and a possible lifetime license revocation, cause an increase in insurance rates, high fines, surcharges, and driver assessment fees, and if that is not enough, worst of all, if convicted, will leave you with a permanent and life long criminal record.
