Wet Reckless Law and Legal Definition
Wet-Reckless refers to an alcohol-related reckless driving, or a plea bargain to a reckless driving that is specifically authorized as a reduction from a DUI charge. "Wet" or "dry" denotes whether alcohol was involved in the commission of the offense. A conviction under a wet-reckless charge typically goes on someone’s record as reckless driving. However, a wet-reckless conviction will be treated just like a DUI by most insurance carriers. It amy also count as a prior DUI offense in a later DUI charge.
