Reckless Driving in New Jersey: What Are the Penalties

Reckless driving in New Jersey is a serious offense, especially if it involves an accident with property damage, or worse, personal injury.  The penalties are heavy (although not as bad as DWI), and should not be taken lightly.

If you have been charged with this offense, and it is your first, you face a fine of $50 to $200, up to 60 days in jail,  up to 90 days suspension of your driver's license, $33 court costs, and 5 points.

If it is a second or subsequent offense, it is a fine of $100 to $500, up to three months in jail, up to 90 days suspension of your driver's license, $33 court costs, and 5 points!

However, the state must still prove its case against you.  Find out more here!
