How Reckless Driving is Treated in Nevada

In Nevada, reckless driving is a severe traffic misdemeanor offense, with penalties that may include:

  • Up to 6 months in jail
  • Fines up to $1,000
  • Driver’s license suspension up to 6 months
  • Four demerit points added to your driving record

Reckless driving citations can be issued for speeding over 20 mph over the limit or other dangerous driving behaviors. The stakes are high, and insurance rates increase. However, an aggressive lawyer may be able to defeat or reduce the charges.

Build an Effective Defense Strategy

There are potential weaknesses in the prosecution’s case that a knowledgeable reckless driving defense attorney can identify and challenge, including:

  • The validity of the traffic stop
  • Questionable calibration of the speed measurement device
  • Insufficient evidence to prove reckless operation
  • Credibility of the officer’s testimony
  • Procedural errors in handling your citation

An attorney can advise whether to challenge the citation in court or consider a plea deal. Every case is different. We carefully assess the details of your citation and develop a customized defense strategy to give you the best chance at a positive outcome.
