Re: What Are My Options For Reckless Driving
According to RCW 46.61.500
Given those provisions, and the resultant skyrocketing insurance premiums, I think you should DEFINITELY get an attorney. This is not a simple infraction. You will have a CRIMINAL record if convicted. An attorney may be able to get it reduced to "negligent driving" or perhaps even speeding. Then you might be able to get a deferral so you would end up with NO record at all and no insurance hikes.
Quoting RCW 46.61.500
Because it's a criminal charge, you might qualify for a public defender if you can't afford an attorney on your own. But believe me, you don't even want to mess with this by yourself.
Where am I going? And why am I in this handbasket?
