Idaho Reckless Driving

In Idaho, Reckless Driving is defined as: "operating a motor vehicle carelessly, heedlessly, without due caution, or at a speed, or in a manner, as to endanger the public or property."  

Punishment for a Reckless Driving Conviction in Idaho

The consequences of a conviction can be severe and long-term. Penalties for a first Reckless Driving conviction include up to $1000 fine and/or 6 months in jail. A conviction also carries a mandatory 30 day driver's license suspension and could result in a suspension of 90 - 180 days. 

A second conviction for reckless driving within five years has increased penalties and can result in up to $2000 fine and/or 1-year in jail. (See: Idaho Code §49-1401). In addition to the penalties ordered by the court, a conviction can cause significant financial harm. If you work in an industry that requires you to drive as part of your job, your employer may fire you due to a suspended license or increases to the cost of their liability insurance. Monthly premiums for your personal auto insurance may drastically increase. In the long run you may actually save money by fighting this charge.
