The city of Long Beach is situated along the Pacific coast in Southern California. Long Beach boasted a population of 492,682 in January 2009, making it the second-largest city in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. Most known for being home to one of the world’s biggest shipping ports, the Port of Long Beach, the city is also a prominent contributor to the development of aerospace industry and high-technology.

As more and more people are drawn to Long Beach for employment and as a place to settle down to raise a family, roads are prone to congestion and arrests are often made for reckless driving (which can include drunk driving charges).

As a misdemeanor offense, reckless driving charges in Long Beach may result in imprisonment for 5 to 90 days, a fine of $145 or $1,000, or both. California Vehicle Code 23103 characterizes reckless driving as operating a vehicle “in willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property”.

If you have been charged with reckless driving in Long Beach, it may be in your best interest to contact a skilled Long Beach reckless driving defense lawyer who will ensure that your rights are not infringed upon.

Comparable to a drunk driving conviction, a reckless driving conviction can result in the DMV adding points to your driver’s license.
