As a main area of California’s Inland Empire, the city of San Bernardino is home to approximately 205,010 inhabitants. Within its stretch of 78.5 square miles in size, San Bernardino is the eighteenth largest city in California based on population. Situated at the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains, San Bernardino draws visitors from all across California and from out-of-state. Considering that the densely populated area of San Bernardino is prone to a relatively large amount of passerby, tourists and residents of San Bernardino may find themselves the subject of an arrest for reckless driving, which can include charges of drunk driving in some incidents.
No one ever expects that they will be pulled over for reckless driving, let alone drunk driving. However, if an officer believes that you have operated your vehicle in “willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property”, as the California Vehicle Code 23103 defines, then you may faces charges of reckless driving. Taking into account that reckless driving is a misdemeanor offense and can result in stern penalties such as a fine of $145 to $1,000, imprisonment for 5 to 90 days, or both, an accused individual may want to contact an experienced San Bernardino reckless driving defense lawyer.
