RECKLESS DRIVING

To prove reckless driving the state must prove two elements:

 

  1. Defendant operated a vehicle.
  2. Defendant did so with a willful or wanton disregard for the

safety of persons or property.

 

Willful means intentionally, knowingly and purposely.

 

Wanton means with a conscious and intentional indifference to consequences and with knowledge that damage or injury is likely to result from the driver’s actions.
