Estatutos Con Respecto a Manejar Peligrosamente (Reckless Driving)
A veces conductores reciben multas por "reckless driving", simplemente
por violar el limite de velocidad o por no adhirirse a una sola via. La combinación de varias infracciones generalmente
no es suficiente para el Estado poder probar un caso de "reckless driving". Para que el Estado pueda
demostrar este caso, las acciones del conductor deben ser muy peligrosas y la vida de alguien tiene que ser puesta
Si usted ha recibido una multa por "reckless driving",
llamenos tan pronto posible. El caso es bien serio pero hay chance de ganarlo.
(1) Any person who drives any vehicle in willful or wanton disregard for the
safety of persons or property is guilty of reckless driving.
(2) Except as provided in subsection (3), any person
convicted of reckless driving shall be punished:
(a) Upon a first conviction, by imprisonment for a period of not
more than 90 days or by fine of not less than $25 nor more than $500, or by both such fine and imprisonment.
On a second or subsequent conviction, by imprisonment for not more than 6 months or by a fine of not less than $50 nor more
than $1,000, or by both such fine and imprisonment.
(3) Any person:
(a) Who is in violation of subsection
(b) Who operates a vehicle; and
(c) Who, by reason of such operation, causes:
to the property or person of another commits a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s.
2. Serious bodily injury to another commits a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s.
775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084. The term "serious bodily injury" means an injury to another person, which consists
of a physical condition that creates a substantial risk of death, serious personal disfigurement, or protracted loss or impairment
of the function of any bodily member or organ.
(4) Notwithstanding any other provision of this section, $5 shall
be added to a fine imposed pursuant to this section. The clerk shall remit the $5 to the Department of Revenue for deposit
in the Emergency Medical Services Trust Fund.
(5) In addition to any other penalty provided under this section,
if the court has reasonable cause to believe that the use of alcohol, chemical substances set forth in s. 877.111, or substances
controlled under chapter 893 contributed to a violation of this section, the court shall direct the person so convicted to
complete a DUI program substance abuse education course and evaluation as provided in s. 316.193(5) within a reasonable period
of time specified by the court. If the DUI program conducting such course and evaluation refers the person to an authorized
substance abuse treatment provider for substance abuse evaluation and treatment, the directive of the court requiring completion
of such course, evaluation, and treatment shall be enforced as provided in s. 322.245. The referral to treatment resulting
from the DUI program evaluation may not be waived without a supporting independent psychosocial evaluation conducted by an
authorized substance abuse treatment provider, appointed by the court, which shall have access to the DUI program psychosocial
evaluation before the independent psychosocial evaluation is conducted. The court shall review the results and recommendations
of both evaluations before determining the request for waiver. The offender shall bear the full cost of this procedure. If
a person directed to a DUI program substance abuse education course and evaluation or referred to treatment under this subsection
fails to report for or complete such course, evaluation, or treatment, the DUI program shall notify the court and the department
of the failure. Upon receipt of such notice, the department shall cancel the person's driving privilege, notwithstanding the
terms of the court order or any suspension or revocation of the driving privilege. The department may reinstate the driving
privilege upon verification from the DUI program that the education, evaluation, and treatment are completed. The department
may temporarily reinstate the driving privilege on a restricted basis upon verification that the offender is currently participating
in treatment and has completed the DUI education course and evaluation requirement. If the DUI program notifies the department
of the second failure to complete treatment, the department shall reinstate the driving privilege only after notice of successful
completion of treatment from the DUI program.
