There are several different classes of drivers on the road. The "Leadfoots" seem to have little regard for posted speed limits, "Sunday Drivers" are often accused of not recognizing others on the road around them, and "Tailgaters" appear as though they're constantly trying to execute some NASCAR-style drafting maneuver. With so many different driving styles, identifying what qualifies as reckless driving may be confusing...
There are some examples of reckless driving that leave little room for debate. Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, failing to obey multiple traffic signals or signs, or racing other cars are clear examples of reckless driving, as is passing in the median or across a double yellow line on a two-way highway. Although these seem like simple traffic violations, a criminal defense attorney will reveal the true facts.
