Wet Reckless



A “Wet Reckless” is a favorable plea bargain that may be offered to drivers charged with DUI but whose blood alcohol content, BAC, is 0.10% or less. The term “Wet” implies that alcohol was involved. Our attorneys are skilled at getting DUI charges reduced to “Wet Reckless”, or a reckless driving charge involving alcohol.

A “Wet Reckless” is not a DUI, per se, but it is similar and will be counted as a “prior DUI” if you ever face DUI charges again within the next 10 years.

A “Wet Reckless” has less severe penalties than a DUI. There are no mandatory DUI classes and no driver’s license suspension for a “Wet Reckless.” A “Wet Reckless” does however carry with it probation and fines, and unless you win the DMV APS hearing you will still be required to file SR-22 proofs of insurance.


A “Dry Reckless” is even more favorable than a “Wet Reckless” and might be offered to those charged with a DUI but whose BAC was 0.08% or less. A “Dry Reckless” does carry with it probation and fines, however it does not count as a “prior DUI” if you ever face DUI charges again within the next 10 years.

Both a “Wet Reckless” and “Dry Reckless” are very favorable plea bargain deals for those facing DUI charges and your attorney is likely to encourage you to take either of these plea bargain deals if they are ever offered.
