Penalties:

Important:
If a Reckless Driving or Negligent Driving 1° is a reduction from a DUI or Physical Control charge, it will count against you as a prior offense (the same as a DUI conviction would have), if you are convicted in the future of a subsequent DUI or other serious alcohol-related or drug-related driving offense.

Also, if the initial charge was DUI or Physical Control, the Department of Licensing in separate proceedings will try to suspend your license for at least 90 days. If that happens, you will be required to have SR 22 high risk insurance for 3 years. However, you may sooner qualify for an Ignition Interlock License, but you cannot operate on a CDL during that time.
