The city of Torrance is situated within Los Angeles County and has an approximate population of 140,820. With its secure communities, successful businesses, moderate weather, and easy access to beaches, the population of Torrance is likely to only increase. According to the 2009 California Population Estimate, Torrance is expected to house a population of 149,111 and may be the eighth largest city in Los Angeles County and the 35th largest in the state of California. With such a vast amount of residents and visitors comes an influx of vehicles on Torrance roads. As a consequence, law enforcement keeps an eye-out for drivers that they suspect to be demonstrating reckless driving practices or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
No one ever expects that they will be arrested for reckless driving, but such incidents do happen from time to time. It is critical for anyone charged with reckless driving to seek legal advice and representation from an experienced Torrance reckless driving defense attorney. Reckless driving is a serious misdemeanor crime with harsh penalties that may include a $145 to $1,000 fine, 5 to 90 days of imprisonment, or both. In addition, a conviction for reckless driving in Torrance can result in the DMV adding points to your driver’s license, which is similar to what happens with a drunk driving conviction.
