Many people believe that because they received a ticket for reckless driving in Florida, it is not a significant matter. They treat it like a speeding ticket. However, reckless driving is a real criminal offense and carries criminal penalties. You can go to jail or you can be put on probation (what is probation?), just like with other criminal offenses. You can end up with a permanent criminal record.
