What Is Reckless Driving?
In Florida, “reckless driving” is a criminal offense. Florida Statutes §316.192 defines reckless driving as having “willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property.” In other words, a reckless driver intentionally puts the lives and safety of other road users at risk.
Specific reckless driving behaviors can include but are not limited to:
- Speeding excessively
- Racing other cars or law enforcement
- Fleeing from a police officer
- Driving while intoxicated
- Driving without regard for traffic laws
- Running red lights
An individual who has come to harm due to another party’s reckless driving behaviors can initiate a civil case. Doing so may help them recover damages from the reckless driver or their car insurance company.
