Reckless Driving Penalties in Florida

Reckless driving can be a common traffic crime charge. This is because driving a vehicle with willful or wanton disregard for the safety of people and/or property can be broadly interpreted to include a wide range of driving behaviors.

Common behaviors that can be considered reckless driving include the following:

  • Speeding
  • Weaving lanes
  • Tailgating
  • Racing
  • Ignoring traffic signs and signals
  • Road rage
  • Driving while impaired (drugs, alcohol, sleepiness, etc.)

A first conviction for reckless driving in Florida can mean serving 90 days in jail and suffering a fine of $500. If someone is convicted a second time, they may be sent to jail for up to six months and fined up to $5,000. If a reckless driving conviction is connected to the injury or death of another person, it can be charged as a first-degree misdemeanor or a felony depending upon the severity of the victim’s injuries.

Penalties for Driving with a Suspended License

A driver’s license can be suspended for a number of reasons in Florida. You can accumulate too many points on your driving record, get convicted of a DUI, or get convicted of another driving-related crime. You can also lose your license by failing to pay child support, failing to appear in court, failing to maintain car insurance, and other reasons not directly related to your driving behavior.

Getting caught driving while your license is suspended can complicate your life a lot. A first-time offense for this violation is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 60 days in jail and up to $500 in fines. A second offense bumps up the severity to a first-degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in jail. If you are caught driving with a suspended license for a third time, you can face felony charges and be sentenced to five years in prison.
