Inattentive Driving and Reckless Driving are two traffic offenses that are actually charged as misdemeanors, and can carry jail time. As opposed to infractions, which simply carry a small fine.
A first reckless driving conviction can mean 30 days license suspension, up to six months in jail and/or a maximum $1,000 in fines. If there is a repeat offense, the driver may be sentenced to a year in jail and/or $2,000 in fines, and 90 day license suspension.
Inattentive driving, while considered a lesser offense than reckless driving, can also mean up to 90 days in jail, maximum of $300 in fines, and will add three point to the driver’s record. Accumulation of 12 or more points within a year will get a driver’s license suspended.
