IL defense lawyerWhen a person makes the decision to drive recklessly, they are making the decision to endanger other travelers as well as themselves. Recognizing this, the state of Illinois punishes reckless driving incredibly harshly. Reckless driving is defined in 625 ILCS 5/11-503, as negligent vehicular operation that willfully disregards the safety of others. According to Illinois state law, reckless driving usually results in a Class A Misdemeanor. Due to the severity of the legal consequences of a reckless driving charge, it is critically important to seek out quality legal representation immediately.

Common Forms of Reckless Driving

In addition to a misdemeanor charge on a person’s permanent record, a reckless driving charge can also result in rises in a person’s insurance rates. In some instances, reckless driving will result in a license revocation or suspension.

Aggravated Speeding: If a person is apprehended while driving 35 miles per hour over the legal speed limit, they will likely be charged with aggravated speeding. Aggravated speeding results in a Class A misdemeanor and is one of the more common forms of reckless driving. The primary reason for aggravated speeding being defined as a form of reckless driving is due to the fact that traveling at such high speeds can impact a person’s reaction time and correspondingly the safety and wellbeing of other travelers.
