I was under the impression that you could not be arrested for speeding. That actually, if you were going fast enough for an officer to want to arrest you, that you would be committing a second offense, ie, wreckless driving/endangerment. I was pulled over by DPS for 107 in a 65 and he told me that I couldn't be arrested for that speed alone. (don't ask LessthanCoop what he's been pulled for.)
I was also briefly detained on my bike while under suspicion of armed robbery (tackled at gunpoint) while the deputies tried to figure out if it was really me. (wasn't) After I was let go, the cop asked if I knew I was speeding and I said yeah, I thought I was being arrested for wreckless driving. He said that they wouldn't charge me with that because it is a serious offense and they reserve it for serious offenders. I've always thought it was pretty funny that you can go to jail for a 30 mph tail scraper but not 100 in a 55.

You are correct. Anyone that got arrested, it was for another charge such as wreckless endangerment, etc.

I've been convicted 3 or 4 times for wreckless driving. It's a serious offence. Depends on the judge. Better get a good attorney. When I was in my early 20's I was sentenced to 16 days in jail for it.

Are you being arrested for speeding, or failing to pledge appearance at the court at the said date and time?

Ok i want to know what are they calling reckless driving? Doing a whellie, does it matter if i was on a 250? If so would i have been arrested? ok so size of engine does not matter right? what if i were on a mountain bike on the road would i have been arrested? because state law requires bike to follow same rules as cars. Then maybe it was becasue i was on one wheel. what if i were on a unicycle, would i have been arrested? Or what if i was in a car that pulled the front wheels off the ground does this not count because there are to wheels still on the ground? this is known as exhibition of exceleration which is just a traffic ticket. i think i will tell the cop to go to this neighborhood where i know there has been recent reckless driving by 8 year olds on thier bmx bikes in this neghborhood.

I think this is a good post. It should be exibition of exceration instead of reckless. I mean because it is not wreckless it is a skill.

Bottom line is, you have been charged with it, get a lawyer, don't risk it if you don't want to spend time in jail.

"I think this is a good post. It should be exibition of exceration instead of reckless. I mean because it is not wreckless it is a skill."

I don't know... it comes across (to me) as a Rant with a large number of assumptions.

I can't see a LEO giving an 'exhibition of speed/acceleration' to a car that lifted the front wheels off the ground and went down a public road that way.
I'd imagine they would get a reckless charge also.
The...rant also ignores some 'minor' differences in regards to the potential hazards of such action on a motorized vehicle weighing several hundered pounds vs that of a 'bicycle'.


Simply put, A car or a motorcyle is not a toy. It's a vehicle, a tool that can easily become a deadly weapon.

Where depends on where you lift the wheelie I think. I mean if you are out in the middle of nowhere I don't see why it should be "reckless driving". Also, what is the difference between the motorcycle being a weapon without wheeling? I mean if you lose control and hit a person they are just as hurt whether being on one wheel or two are they not?
