Careless/Reckless Driving

The Minnesota attorneys at Newmark Storms Law Office have many years of experience handling careless and reckless driving violations.

In Minnesota careless and reckless driving violations are considered criminal offenses.

Consequences for careless or reckless driving violations vary based on several factors, such as prior offenses, severity of violation, and whether alcohol was involved in the incident. A careless or reckless driving violation in Minnesota can result in one or more of the following penalties:

  • Fines
  • Jail time
  • Increase in insurance rates
  • Loss of driver’s license
  • Inability to obtain future employment as a commercial driver

The punishments for careless and reckless driving offenses are more severe than most other petty misdemeanor traffic violations (speeding tickets, running a red light, etc.). The lawyers at Newmark Storms can help win a favorable result for such cases in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Click here to contact a lawyer.
