Every State has different laws and policy about reckless driving. In California, a driver has to commit at least 3 moving violations for reckless to be filed. So, basically speed, run a stop sign and cross the yellow line and it can be filed reckless.

With that being said, a police officer can write you up for it if he simply feels you are endangering the public safety. You will beat it in court though if you did not commit at least 3 moving violations.
