Protecting Ohio Residents From Reckless Operation Charges
Reckless operation is a bit of a catch-all charge in Ohio, levied against a spectrum of offenses, often at a police officer’s sole discretion. Excess speed, failure to maintain a lane, weaving in traffic, or even if an officer just suspects other infractions and needs more time to investigate can all result in a reckless operation charge. And you don’t even have to be on a public street to be charged!
Though on its own it’s a minor misdemeanor, police and prosecutors love to tack this charge onto other infractions and run up points on your license, resulting in suspension. But don’t give up hope.
