The law surrounding what constitutes reckless driving is broadly defined, and Philadelphia police notoriously issue reckless driving tickets when lesser citations are more appropriate. In these situations, it’s best to work with an experienced traffic attorney who knows the law and how to mitigate the ticket. For example, when a man was recently and improperly cited for reckless driving on Roosevelt Boulevard for allegedly passing a few cars in rainy weather conditions, his license was suddenly exposed to five points and a mandatory suspension.
To effectively deal with the ticket, he contacted attorney Michael Fienman. With his extensive traffic background and track record of outstanding results, attorney Fienman appeared in traffic court on the man’s behalf and negotiated to ultimately reduce the violation to a careless driving infraction. This is a far more reasonable ticket that only involved three points and spared his client from a mandatory license suspension.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
