What is reckless driving?

Maryland defines reckless driving as operating a vehicle “in wanton or willful disregard for the safety of persons or property” or in a manner that indicates such a disregard. The term “willful” refers to conduct that is intentional or done on purpose.  “Wanton” generally means the person understood but disregarded the consequences of their conduct.


Reckless driving is a misdemeanor and a standard first offense can cost up to $1,000 in fines.
