Apparently she was going to work and some dude was going 10 miles bellow speed limit so she decided to pass him, the extra line was finishing in like 300ft so she floored it but the dude floored it as well not to let her in... The line was finishing and she could not slow down on time so she hit side railing at like 60mph, totaling her car and side swiping the dudes car. Cop gave her a ticket for reckless driving on top of that...

She's getting a lawyer to try to wave reckless driving ticket. What should I expect? It's her first accident in 3 years lol. She totaled another car just over 3 years ago... also her fault.

Brad Icard, in charlotte, hes the man and will get it dropped for a reasonable price. Used him for several speeding tickets, referred many friends and he gets the job done on any traffic citation. Before I found him I used Michael Greene who is a partner of the famed George Laughrun but he got too pricey for me, but both great lawyers who can/will get it dropped.

No idea, I'm just glad she's ok... Extremely bruised but ok. She was late for work and dude was in no apparent hurry so she decided to pass him. He decided to speed up so she would hit rail head on. We were supposed to get married in 8 months but now we postpone our wedding until 2014 because we need to buy a new car and her insurance will probably double.

LOL, Brad Icard got me out of a ticket, owed him 300 dollars later. The ticket was for 250 though...I guess it was worth it since it didn't get on my record at the time.

What an asshole to do that to her. He should be charged with something for causing it. Glad she's ok.

Dude was a douche, but she got a ticket for breaking the law as well. Get a lawyer, it's your only chance.

Speeding tickets are a joke. Pay the fine & get increased premiums or pay a lawyer, he slips a cut to the DA & it is dropped. Oh well.

She should learn to be more patient in life. Tickets and insurance hikes aren't worth the trouble. I think tickets in general are absurd, but as long as they're around it's best to drive like an old lady.

You might feel entitled to floor it and pass people or to tailgate slow drivers but you'll only have yourself to blame when it ends poorly.

Tailgating is the one thing in life I truly hate. Ride my trucks tailgate & you'll find yourself staring down the barrel of a Colt 1911 .45

Defintely need a lawyer for a reckless driving ticket. Only thing worse than that is DWI or passing a stopped school bus. Can't tell you what to expect though.

Glad shes ok -

Best gift you could give her for your wedding would be driving lessons given by a professional. She doesnt appear to use good judgement - if it was me and some person floored it when I tried to get around them I'd back off - too many cases of nut cases and road rage end badly - sorry - proving youre the biggest bad ass behind the wheel isnt worth dying over.
