Below are some notes from Mississippi law that demonstrate the harsh consequences of a reckless driving conviction:
Mississippi Code Annotated § 63-3-1201 deals with reckless driving.
- If a person drives a vehicle in such a manner as to indicate either a willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property, that person can be found guilty of reckless driving.
- A first conviction of reckless driving will result in a fine of $5 to $100. A second or subsequent conviction may result in imprisonment up to 10 days or up to a $500 fine, or both.
A conviction of reckless driving could not only cost you in fines and jail time but may also affect your insurance rates.
