Located within the northeast region of Los Angeles County, the city of Palmdale has witnessed a tremendous increase in population over the recent years. Mostly full of family communities, Palmdale’s popularity and growth has made it the largest desert city in California with an approximate population of 151,346. Palmdale is close to the beautiful San Gabriel Mountain range and is considered a safe place to live. However, like any major city, Palmdale experiences its share of arrests for various criminal offenses, including reckless driving and DUI.

Being charged with reckless driving in Palmdale is an unexpected occurrence which often leaves a person feeling overwhelmed regarding what kind of legal decisions they should make. If an officer determines that you have operated your vehicle “in willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property”, as it is defined in California Vehicle Code 23103, then you could face serious consequences. Reckless driving is a misdemeanor offense that may result in a $145 to $1,000 fine, imprisonment for 5 to 90 days, or both. In addition, as it applies to a drunk driving conviction, a reckless driving conviction may result in the DMV adding points to your driver’s license. It is for these reasons, and many others that a person arrested for reckless driving may want to contact a skilled Palmdale reckless driving defense attorney.
