From Omaha to Grand Island, Nebraska has beefed up its efforts to fight excessive speeding, so lead-foot drivers, beware!
While you shouldn’t intentionally drive too fast, Nebraska has no set speed that is considered reckless driving. Instead, the state leaves it up to the judgment of the police officer to determine if you are driving recklessly.
The law states that reckless driving is driving any motor vehicle in such a manner as to indicate an indifferent or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property. Therefore, any action that endangers the lives of others can earn you a ticket.
A first offense of reckless driving in Nebraska is a Class 3 misdemeanor, which means it will stay on your permanent record. It also carries these penalties:
  • Up to three months in jail
  • A maximum $500 fine
