Reckless Driving

Careless and imprudent driving is often referred to as "reckless driving" in Missouri. There are many examples of behavior that may lead to charges of reckless driving, including excessive speeding and distracted driving.

While at first thought, reckless driving does not seem to be a serious criminal offense, a conviction can have a surprisingly great impact. A conviction for reckless driving can lead to the following:

  • Fines
  • License suspension
  • Points added to your driving record
  • Increased insurance rates
