Careless Driving and other summary traffic offense such as Reckless Driving are often also charged when someone is charged with DUI. These charges are usually the probable cause the Officer or Trooper relies on to stop your vehicle. Some of these charges could also be Speeding, Stop Sign violations, or disregarding traffic lanes, to name a few in addition to Careless Driving. Most of the traffic offenses do not require jail time if convicted but the fines can be between $25 and $300. Some of these violations even though they are only summary offenses can carry a jail sentence of up to 90 days, additional driver license suspensions, or result in points being added to your driving record which can result in a license suspension and need to be taken seriously just like the DUI charge.
