Indiana Code 9-21-8-52 Reckless driving

A person who operates a vehicle and who recklessly drives at such an unreasonably high rate of speed or at such an unreasonably low rate of speed under the circumstances as to endanger the safety or the property of others; or block the proper flow of traffic; passes another vehicle from the rear while on a slope or on a curve where vision is obstructed for a distance of less than five hundred (500) feet ahead; drives in and out of a line of traffic, except as otherwise permitted; or speeds up or refuses to give one-half (1/2) of the roadway to a driver overtaking and desiring to pass commits a Class C misdemeanor.

 

However, the offense is a Class A misdemeanor if it causes bodily injury to a person.

 

If an offense above results in damage to the property of another person, it is a Class B misdemeanor and the court may recommend the suspension of the current driving license of the person convicted of the offense described in subsection (a) for a fixed period of not more than one (1) year.

 

If an offense above causes bodily injury to a person, the court may recommend the suspension of the driving privileges of the person convicted of the offense described in this subsection for a fixed period of not more than one (1) year.

 

In addition to any other penalty imposed under subsection (b), the court may suspend the person's driving privileges for ninety (90) days or if the person has committed at least one (1) previous offense under this section or IC 9-21-12-1, for one (1) year.
