With over 250 people going to jail for reckless driving in Connecticut last year alone, you cannot cut corners when defending these cases.
Shelton, CT (PRWEB) November 01, 2011
Attorney Jay Ruane, known as the premiere Connecticut DUI defense attorney has released his Reckless Driving Guide and developed a complementary website for information about the charge of reckless driving in Connecticut.
Each year, over 900 people are charged with Reckless driving, which is a violation of Connecticut General Statutes 14-222. The penalties are harsh - driver's license loss is mandatory, and goes up for multiple offenses. The crime itself can be hard to defend - but Ruane sees hope where other attorneys don't.
"There are many ways to defend a reckless driving case" says Ruane, "The truth is most lawyers don't even bother to do a cursory investigation - they take the speed on the ticket as the truth and that ends the case for them." Ruane counsels other attorneys to visit the scene of the violation, so it can be determined if the speed is even possible given the roadway and traffic, as well as checking to see if the vantage point of the arresting officer is accurate on the report. "With over 250 people going to jail for reckless driving last year alone, you cannot cut corners when defending these cases," says Ruane.
Ruane is a member of Ruane Attorneys, Connecticut's largest criminal defense firm with 6 attorneys handling DUI, reckless driving and criminal cases statewide. Ruane Attorneys has offices in Shelton and Hartford.
