Located at the eastern side of the San Fernando Valley, the city of Glendale is a major part of Los Angeles County. With a population of 207,303 as of January 2009, Glendale is the third largest city in Los Angeles County. As with any bustling city, Glendale experiences its share of reckless driving arrests in which those who stand accused deserve to receive help from a skilled Glendale reckless driving defense attorney.
According to California Vehicle Code 23103, reckless driving is classified according to an officer of the law’s judgment, and is defined as a “willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property.” If DUI is involved, more extensive sentencing can be expected as well. Reckless driving charges can be complicated; particularly for an individual unfamiliar with Glendale city streets and who may have been unaware of either obscured signage or simply that their driving was classifiable as reckless. Charges filed against a reckless driver, including those drivers that drive while under the influence of either alcohol or drugs, can be charged with a misdemeanor, imprisonment, and steep monetary fines.
Reckless driving charges can lead to points being added to your driver’s license, which can have a lasting effect on an individual’s current insurance coverage and all subsequent coverage thereafter. The same can be said for DUI charges, which can result in even harsher punishment and repercussions as a result.
