The defendant is charged with reckless driving by [Brief Statement of Facts Allegedly Constituting Violation] on [Date] in [Name of County] County, Oklahoma.

Notes on Use

This introductory instruction is meant for use with respect to the misdemeanor crimes created by 47 O.S. 1991, § 11-901.

Committee Comments

The Commission has concluded that no criminal statute exists in Oklahoma that creates a crime denominated "careless driving." Section 11-801 by itself is not a penal statute. Violations of section 11-801 are criminal because of section 11-901, properly denominated "reckless driving," or because of section 11-807, properly denominated "speeding."
