    Question: What is the punishment for reckless driving and six counts of public endangerment?

    Answer: Reckless driving is a class 2 misdemeanor which is punishable by up to 4 months in jail, up to 2 years probation, and a fine of up to $750.00. In addition, your driving privileges could be suspended for up to 90 days. If you have a prior conviction for negligent homicide, manslaughter, or a DUI, reckless driving becomes a class 1 misdemeanor and you must serve at least 20 days in jail before you are eligible for probation, you may be fined up to $2500.00, and your drivers license will be revoked.

    Endangerment is a class 1 misdemeanor which is punishable by up to 6 months in jail, up to 3 years probation, and a fine of up to $2500.00. However, if you endangered someone to the point there was a substantial risk of death, the crime becomes a class 6 felony, which is punishable by up to 1.5 years in prison, up to 3 years probation, and a fine of up to $150,000.00, yes, that's $150,000.00.

    An SUV was driving 35 mph in a 45mph zone in the left hand lane, talking on a cell phone, smoking a cigarette, oblivious to the 12 cars line up behind him. Several cars speed up and passed him on the right side, one car expressed his contempt for the inconsiderate driver by flipping him the "bird" the oblivious driver then flipped back, showing his knowledge of the situation he was causing. This is or should be "reckless endangerment" by the oblivious driver and should be stopped and ticketed!
