Wheelies and Reckless Driving

Ok, so I'm part of the problem, and I'm sure the solution is to lock me up and throw away the key.

However, maybe someone out there has some advice. I just recently was issued a reckless driving ticket for popping a wheelie (not riding one, just popping it up) on a city street at 15 mph.

I've only gotten one speeding ticket ever in my 20 years of driving and have no criminal record, so I don't expect to get the YEAR IN JAIL and $5000.00 fine that is the maximum possible sentence, however, I'm still quite freaked out.

The cop says he got it on video (he had a camera running in his windshield).

So I'm calling traffic lawyers and preparing to fork over the 2500.00 flat fee to have them defend me.

Anyone have any experience with this? What should I expect?
