Yes, reckless driving is a court required offense and will KILL your driving record and insurance. It is the same here in Texas. I was pulled over doing 90 in a 60 in my old Mustang. Fortunately, the cop was cool and only gave me a ticket. Anything over 20 over could be recless driving. That ticket cost me $350, plus $250 for an attorney to keep it off my record. Be careful!
I just wanted to try to help you out SJ... 20 over in the State of Texas is not Reckless Driving, unless the cop determines that it is. Here is what the Texas Trans
Sec. 545.401. RECKLESS DRIVING; OFFENSE. (a) A person commits an offense if the person drives a vehicle in wilful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property.
(b) An offense under this section is a misdemeanor punishable by:
(1) a fine not to exceed $200;
(2) confinement in county jail for not more than 30 days; or
(3) both the fine and the confinement.
(c) Notwithstanding Section 542.001, this section applies to:
(1) a private access way or parking area provided for a client or patron by a business, other than a private residential property or the property of a garage or parking lot for which a charge is made for the storing or parking of motor vehicles; and
(2) a highway or other public place.
(d) Notwithstanding Section 542.004, this section applies to a person, a team, or motor vehicles and other equipment engaged in work on a highway surface.
Acts 1995, 74th Leg., ch. 165, Sec. 1, eff. Sept. 1, 1995.
So, as I see it, according to this, you could be driving 15 or 20 miles an hour, and if unsafe, you could be penalized for reckless driving.
Hope this helps you a little bit.
