Rhode Island Reckless Driving Laws and Penalties 

Under Rhode Island law, reckless driving consists of operating a vehicle recklessly, which endangers the lives or safety of others. It can also include trying to flee from law enforcement. This is generally understood to mean that the driver knew or should have known their driving behavior was dangerous but disregarded that fact. 

Is Reckless Driving a Felony or Misdemeanor in Rhode Island?

A first offense of reckless driving is charged as a misdemeanor. Potential penalties include:

  • Up to a year in jail 
  • A fine of up to $500
  • The loss of your license.

Second and subsequent offenses are charged as felonies, punishable by: 

  • Up to five years in prison
  • A fine of up to $5,000
  • A license suspension

The DMV orders license suspensions for reckless driving convictions. If a third conviction occurs within a 12-month timeframe, your license will be revoked. 

The penalties you will face in any reckless driving conviction will ultimately depend on the case's specific facts, including whether anyone was injured and the extent of their injuries. Where others have been physically harmed, significant jail sentences will likely apply.
