Not sure how many points reckless driving is, but ~$400 gets you this verdict without ever stepping foot into a courtroom and already includes court costs. The reckless driving charge was speeding down i95. Interesting verdict since they didn't even need any information from me nor did I have to get my speedometer re-calibrated. So always keep your points and record crystal clean by getting a lawyer. My driving record is pages long, but I have never lost points -- One note: Military bases have their own point system and this doesn't quite work there
