The city of Ontario is a great contributor to San Bernardino County’s culture and prosperity. With an estimated population of 171,691 in 2000, it may not surprise many people that Ontario’s population has increased to almost one hundred times the size it was one hundred years ago. Now, Ontario is home to a small international airport and an ECHL hockey team, the Ontario Reign. Ontario is a chief focal point for freight and passengers, which is supported by many major freeways that pass through the city. With such a substantial amount of traveling along its roadways, Ontario is not immune to alleged incidents of reckless driving or DUI, in which those accused have the right to receive legal representation from an experienced Ontario reckless driving defense attorney.
California Vehicle Code 23103 defines reckless driving as an act that demonstrates “willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property.”If an officer believes that you have operated your vehicle recklessly in Ontario, then you may be charged with a misdemeanor and face paying a fine of $145 to $1,000, being imprisoned for 5 to 90 days, or both. Reckless driving charges may also complement charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. This is why it may be in your best interest to seek the legal counsel and representation of a skilled Ontario criminal defense attorney who has experience handling reckless driving and DUI cases.
