Reckless Driving: Specified Injury Enhancement Instruction By CC Committee
August 20th, 2014


The CC Committee explained the addition of CC 3223 in August 2013: “The committee convened a working group consisting of a law professor and two trial judges to determine appropriate new instructions to add to CC. Although CC already has a misdemeanor reckless driving instruction, [CC 2200], working group members concluded from both personal experience as well as from polling colleagues that the felony enhancement for this instruction is charged quite often. The committee drafted the proposed new instruction to fill that need.” (Advisory Committee on Criminal Jury Instructions Report (July 15, 2013), at p. 4.)
