Negligent Driving Differences


Today I want to talk to you about the difference between Negligent Driving in the first degree and the Negligent Driving in the second degree.  In slang, we call it Neg 1 and Neg 2.

Negligent Driving 1st Degree…

Neg 1 is an alcohol related criminal traffic offense, it is a lesser offense than a DUI, a DUI is a gross misdemeanor.  Neg 1 is a simple misdemeanor, but it is an alcohol related traffic offense.

It is a criminal offense.  So you are subject to go to jail and fines and all
of those things.

Negligent Driving 2nd Degree…

is a civil traffic infraction, so it is like a speeding ticket.  It is a big speeding ticket. But it is in the same category as a speeding ticket.

Both Would Effect...

Your insurance and obviously Neg 1 is a crime and you would have a criminal record.
